Recently Howard County Health Department added “Hospital Capacity” to their COVID-19 dashboard.

Here is a look at the weekly tracking of the number of patients with Coronavirus noted in the dashboard:
The number of patients noted with COVID-19 in beds in the Howard County Hospital has lowered slightly over the past couple of weeks. I am sure that has played a part in the partial opening of businesses that happened in Howard County recently.
According to the dashboard Howard County General Hospital is at more than 70% utilization of total beds currently:
Again I will add this to my weekly tracking and see how this number fluctuates on a weekly basis.
