Howard County 7-day average COVID-19 positivity rate is 1.80% and 7-day average case rate per 100,000 is 7.3

Shared by Howard County Executive Calvin Ball on November 8th:

We are making incredible progress to mitigate COVID-19 in our community as we continues to see a decline in our COVID-19 cases and hospital utilization metrics. As of 9:00 a.m. today, our 7-day average positivity rate is 1.80% and our 7-day average case rate per 100,000 of our population is 7.3. There are currently 4 COVID-19 patients in both ICU and Acute Care units.

As the holiday season approaches, and more folks are gathering indoors, it’s vital to have a highly vaccinated community. We are determined to reach every eligible resident and encourage vaccination as other COVID-19 variants continue to be a concern. Howard County continues to be a leader in the state with our COVID-19 vaccination rates – with 95.4% of residents 12+ receiving at least one dose of a vaccine.

Join us tomorrow, November 9th, at 11:00 a.m. for a COVID-19 update on our efforts to vaccinate our children between the ages of 5 and 11. Residents can watch live on Facebook.
