Anne Arundel County Again Considered High-Risk Area for COVID

Anne Arundel County has again been designated as an area with a high risk of transmission of the coronavirus, as once-low case numbers spike amid the spread of the highly contagious delta variant of the virus.

The county’s infection rate reached 17 cases per 100,000 people as of Tuesday — the highest since April, the Capital Gazette reported. In comparison to June and early July, the coronavirus case rate stood less than 1 per 100,000.

Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman, the county health officer, said Tuesday that hospitals have seen an increase in cases of COVID-19 — the potentially deadly respiratory disease caused by the virus — mostly from the delta variant and among the unvaccinated, the Gazette reported.

Over 50% of eligible county residents have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine and nearly 55% are fully vaccinated, the Gazette reported.
