43 Maryland Schools Have COVID-19 Outbreaks: Report

Forty-three Maryland schools are currently amid coronavirus outbreaks, according to a recent report.

Of the 43 affected schools, D.C.-area jurisdictions Howard and Montgomery counties each have three on the list while Prince George’s County has none, WMAR-TV in Baltimore reported Monday.

Each school on the list has at least two confirmed cases that could be either a student or staff member, WMAR reported, citing state data.

Students and staff at an infected person’s classroom/cohort have to quarantine for two weeks. The affected school is removed from the state health department’s outbreak list once health officials confirm the 14-day quarantine passed with no new cases or pending results.

Nevertheless, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says in-person learning hasn’t contributed to substantial community outbreaks.
