While we are closely monitoring COVID-19 spikes in states across the country, Maryland is currently doing better than 40 other states on our health metrics. We are one of just 10 states in America where new cases are low and continuing to stay low.

According to the official numbers reported today by the Maryland Department of Health and the CDC, Maryland is experiencing declines in our seven-day positivity rate (3.00%) and daily positivity rate (2.65%). Our statewide positivity rate has dropped by nearly 89% since it peaked 189 days ago, and positivity rates are low and stable in our largest jurisdictions, including Montgomery Co (2.53%), Baltimore City (2.78%), Anne Arundel Co (2.96%), and Prince George’s Co (3.99%).

Total hospitalizations are down 73% since they peaked 176 days ago, and ICU levels are down 80% since they peaked 166 days ago.

With our health metrics continuing to remain low and stable, we encourage all jurisdictions to safely enter Stage Three of recovery and to focus on encouraging our economic health and wellbeing.

Today we are doubling the $250 million we have already provided in COVID-19 emergency economic relief for Marylanders for a total relief package of $500 million through the Maryland Strong: Economic Recovery Initiative. This investment will fund a combination of new relief programs, as well as the expansion of existing successful relief programs, in order to quickly provide additional relief to thousands of struggling restaurants, small businesses, and Main Streets across the state.

I have directed our entire team in each agency to ensure that this much-needed funding gets out the door as quickly as possible. We also intend to work closely with our local partners so that they can assist in expeditiously getting this money into the hands of those who need it most.
