There are empty tables and no lines at some of Baltimore’s most popular spots as local businesses deal with coronavirus concerns. The business community is taking precautions and following advice from a leading medical expert.

Former City Health Commissioner Dr. Lena Wen met with Greater Baltimore Committee members March 12 to help businesses navigate the new coronavirus world. She said precautions now could make a big difference later.

“This window right now, the next two or three weeks are that exact narrow window that we have to take action,” Wen said.

With new information coming out daily, look for more precautions in public places.
