An article in yesterday's Maryland section gave an incorrect number for a Baltimore County hot line for questions about anthrax and other safety concerns. The number is 410-887-3490.

An article in yesterday's Maryland section about the state's coastal bays incorrectly stated the extent of ecologically valuable submerged underwater grasses in Isle of Wight Bay. State environmental officials say that with gains in recent years, about 3 percent of the bay's waters have healthy stocks of the sea grasses.

The same article misstated shoreline protection rules in Worcester County. The county enforces a 50-foot building setback from coastal waters and requires a minimum buffer of 25 feet of vegetation along the shore.

The Sun regrets the errors.
