This week had the lowest weekly numbers we have seen in 2021 in regards to new cases (Maryland and Howard County), positivity rate (Howard County), deaths due to COVID-19 (Maryland). All of the critical data points seem to be heading in the right direction.
One thing to continue to monitor is COVID-19 vaccines administered. While there is easy access to vaccinations (many areas offering walk up vaccination opportunities) the numbers of vaccines being administered seem to be reducing significantly.
