Howard County government launched a new dashboard tracking COVID-19 in the county, including active cases, recovered cases, and deaths. The information is sourced from the Howard County Health Department and updates daily, it may differ from the Maryland Department of Health due to the timing of data collection.
“This tool will allow Howard County to track cases of COVID-19, and ultimately measures our progress at limiting the spread of the virus,” said County Executive Calvin Ball. “We’ve taken extreme measures to implement social distancing and other mitigation efforts, and this data should show that impact over time. It is critical that we continue to adhere to the stay-at-home order and limit our interactions with others to keep our rate manageable.”
This is a big step up from the information previously provided on the Howard County Health Department webpage concerning Coronavirus cases in Howard County.
