Prevent Heatstroke in Hot Cars
On average, every 10 days a child dies from heatstroke in a vehicle. In more than half of these deaths, the caregiver forgot the child was in the car.

Tips for Preventing Heatstroke – Remember A.C.T.

 

Avoid heatstroke related injury and death by never leaving a child alone in a car, not even for a minute. And make sure to keep your car locked when you’re not inside so kids don’t get in on their own. 

 

Create reminders. Keep a stuffed animal or other memento in your child’s car seat when it’s empty and move it to the front seat as a visual reminder when your child is in the back seat. Or place and secure your phone, briefcase or purse in the backseat when traveling with your child.

 

Take action. If you see a child alone in a car, call 911. Emergency personnel want you to call. They are trained to respond to these situations.

Because travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19, staying home is the best way to prevent getting sick.

If you must travel, take these steps to protect yourself and others during your trip:

• Wash your hands often
• Avoid close contact with others
• Wear a cloth face covering in public
• Cover coughs and sneezes
• Pick up food at drive-throughs, curbside restaurant service, or stores

"Governor Larry Hogan today announced that Maryland has now surpassed more than 800,000 COVID-19 tests, including a record 21,140 tests over the last 24 hours, as the state’s key health metrics continue to trend in a positive direction. State health officials are monitoring the spikes and outbreaks in neighboring states, as well as the rising positivity rate among young people.

Maryland continues to expand its testing capacity as part of a long-term strategy. In total, Maryland has now conducted 807,926 COVID-19 tests, including a record 21,140 tests over the last 24 hours. 643,391 Marylanders have now been tested for COVID-19—representing 10.6% of the state’s population.

The state’s seven-day average positivity rate is 4.45%, and the daily positivity rate is 3.67%, the second-lowest daily rate the state has reported. The positivity rate is below 7% in every jurisdiction, with the exception of Queen Anne’s County, which has experienced a 259% increase in its positivity rate since June 30 and has the state’s highest positivity rate at 8.49%

There are 392 current total COVID-19 hospitalizations, with 114 ICU beds in use.
