The following information is from Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on June 28th:
We are making incredible progress as a community to combat COVID-19 in our community, though it is still not completely eradicated. To date in Howard County, we’ve had 19,457 cases of COVID-19 and, sadly, 251 deaths. As of 9:00am today, our 7-day average positivity rate is 0.4% and our 7-day average case rate per 100,000 of our population is at 0.8. Our positivity rate continues to trend downwards and is the lowest since we began tracking it. There are currently five COVID-19 patients in both ICU and Acute Care unit.
According to the Maryland Department of Health, 82.5% of Howard County residents 12+ have received at least one dose and 76.9% are fully vaccinated. Howard County continues to lead the state with our incredible vaccination records, but we must not let the work stop there.
Let’s StayCOVIDSafe by getting vaccinated today and encourage family and friends to get their shots too.
