The following information is from Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on July 6th:
To date in Howard County, we’ve had 19,475 cases of COVID-19 and 251 deaths. As of 9:00am today, our 7-day average positivity rate is 0.56% and our 7-day average case rate per 100,000 of our population is at 1.23. These metrics have continued to remain low as more of our residents are fully vaccinated. There are currently no COVID-19 patients in both ICU and Acute Care unit.
According to the Maryland Department of Health, 83.1% of Howard County residents 12+ have received at least one dose and 77.8% are fully vaccinated. Howard County continues to lead the state with our vaccination progress, but we will continue to reach out to those who have not yet received a vaccine.
If you haven’t already received your shot – now’s the time. Recent data shows 90% of cases are among unvaccinated persons and 100% of deaths are among unvaccinated residents. Encourage your family and friends to visit vaccine.howardcountymd.gov to find a clinic nearby.
