‘The fight against this virus is far from over,” Governor Larry Hogan said on Friday. “The positivity rate among Marylanders under the age of 35 is now 34% higher than the rate among those 35 and older. We simply cannot afford to stop being vigilant and cautious.”

“Maryland has tested 8.4% of its population as we work toward a statewide goal of testing 10% of the population in all 24 jurisdictions,” Governor Hogan added. “Six jurisdictions have exceeded the goal: Baltimore City leads large jurisdictions with 9.7%, and only Queen Anne’s County is lagging below 5%.”

“Maryland’s key COVID-19 health metrics continue to trend in a positive direction, with the statewide positivity rate dropping to a new low of 4.92%, and hospitalizations falling below 500 for the first time in 12 weeks,” Hogan concluded.
