No update from Howard County Health Department yet this morning (that I have seen) about the 4 new cases being reported at the state level…they are actually still reporting 4 cases on their website.

Here is the site to keep an eye on in Howard County for updates: https://www.howardcountymd.gov/Departments/Health/MM-Alerts-and-Recalls

Here is a site to watch for information on Maryland cases: https://phpa.health.maryland.gov/Pages/Novel-coronavirus.aspx.

The Washington Post has some interesting (albeit not totally up to date) tracking information for the DMV area (https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/local/dc-maryland-virginia-coronavirus-cases/?itid=lk_inline_manual_4)

This is a good site to keep up to date with the latest coronavirus announcements worldwide:  (Worldometer) https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ or (Johns Hopkins) https://coronavirus.jhu.edu/map.html.
