Maryland Hits Lowest COVID Positivity Rate for 3rd Straight Day

Maryland reported Thursday its lowest-ever coronavirus positivity rate for the third consecutive day.

The rate fell to 2.06%, down from 2.19% on Wednesday, according to state health department data. Public health experts say a 5% positivity rate is recommended.

COVID-19-related hospitalizations are also markedly declining. As of Thursday, 555 people were hospitalized in the state, 30 fewer than the previous day.

More than 67% of Maryland adults have received at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine. Gov. Larry Hogan said last week he will lift a mandate to wear masks indoors in public once the number reaches 70%.
