ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ) — As coronavirus cases in Maryland top 73,500, hospitalizations slightly declined after a slight increase over the weekend.

The state reports a total of 73,527 positive COVID-19 cases over the span of the pandemic as of July 13.

Currently, 386 people are hospitalized with 108 in the ICU. As of Monday, 3,194 people have died from the virus in the state.

Maryland has administered 818,993 coronavirus tests with 578,430 being negative. The positivity rate is at 4.63 percent according to the state’s data, though a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University puts it at 5.48 percent.

Of the 11,467 ever hospitalized, 5,230 have been released from isolation.

CORONAVIRUS RESOURCES: 

Governor Larry Hogan tweeted, “While a number of states continue to see alarming #COVID19 spikes and outbreaks, the encouraging trends in Maryland’s key metrics are holding steady.”

Maryland has opened free testing sites across the state, urging people to learn their status.

At CVS testing locations, the pharmacy said results could take up to seven days to process because of a lab backlog.

While Maryland has not seen outbreaks surge like they have the South and West, the resort community of Ocean City has seen several restaurants close or restrict indoor dining either as a precaution or because staff tested positive.

Health officials urged people to continue to wear masks in public. President Trump wore a mask during an appearance in Maryland over the weekend.

His administration is now pushing for schools to reopen in the fall. Governor Hogan said Maryland is working on a plan that would combine classroom and virtual instruction—but nothing is final yet.

The CEO of Baltimore City schools recently said there would be a plan for all-virtual instruction for those parents who do not feel comfortable sending their children back into the classroom.

    Too bad Hogan isn’t running the country, he is 100 times saner and smarter than Trump
