Maryland’s COVID Positivity Rate Back Above 2%

Maryland’s seven-day average coronavirus positivity rate has risen above 2% again after weeks of decline.

As of Monday, the positivity rate stands at 2.15%, a 0.1% increase over the past 24 hours, according to health department data. Before Sunday, the rate hadn’t been above 2% since May 23.

Additionally, 256 new cases were logged Monday.

Area doctors say the uptick is in no small part due to a surge of the highly contagious Delta variant, particularly among the unvaccinated, Baltimore’s WJZ-TV reported.

Maryland currently has fully vaccinated roughly 3.5 million residents, or about 57% of the state’s population, according to health department data.
