Latest information on Covid-19 in Howard County
Latest from Howard County Executive:
"We are pleased to keep our community data-informed through this pandemic. Today’s 7-day rolling average positivity rate shows a 4.74% rate in Howard County, with a 4.89% rate in the State of Maryland. The lower positivity rate indicates that fewer residents are testing positive. When communities have less than a 10% positive rate, infections are easier to track and allow for better isolation of the virus.
There have been a total of 28,669 tests administered in the county to date, with 2,706 tests administered in the past week. This represents a 9.4% increase in testing since last week. As of 9:00 a.m. this morning, the total population tested in Howard County is 7.9%
While we are resuming normal activities, please continue to practice physical distancing, wear face coverings when interacting with others, and frequently wash hands.
