Gov. Hogan said at a press conference Wednesday the state’s hospitalizations have risen 28 percent in the past two weeks. He also said the positivity rate, the percentage of people testing positive, is 6.72 percent for those under 35. It is 3.8 percent for those older than 35.

 

Baltimore City, Baltimore County and Prince George’s County are the only jurisdictions with positivity rates above five percent.

“We’re in much better shape than we were in the spring, and we’re in much better shape than most other states, but it is not a guarantee that we’re not going to be in bad shape in the fall or in the months to come,” Gov. Hogan said. “And we’re just doing everything we can every day to try to keep that from happening.”
