Announced in the press conference from Maryland Governor Larry Hogan today: Among today’s new cases is a 5-year-old girl in Howard County. It’s the first case of a child contracting the virus in Maryland.
No update from Howard County Health Department yet this morning (that I have seen) about the 8 new cases being reported at the state level…they are actually still reporting 8 cases on their website. I am curious if County Executive Ball will make an announcement today about the 5 year old. I will keep an eye out.

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)
