This is a difficult chart to read as all three are nearly the same (Maryland: 5.82%, Howard County: 5.78% and Carroll County: 5.69%)

My Notes:

Maryland has seen the number of new COVID-19 cases rise for four consecutive weeks. Rises in new cases, people hospitalized, total beds in use and positivity rates shows we are far from over this pandemic yet.

Seeing a significant jump in the number of vaccines administered across the state and locally in Howard County and Carroll County is a great thing. Hopefully we see the other numbers start to drop in the near future.
