Maryland’s Daily COVID Positivity Rate Falls Below 1% For First Time

Maryland’s daily coronavirus positivity rate fell to 0.74% Thursday — the first time since the pandemic began that the rate was below 1%.

For context, the daily rate, which measures the number of positive results among coronavirus tests, had been as high as 11% as recently as January and hovered around 20-30% at the outset of the pandemic in April 2020.

As of Friday, the state’s seven-day average positivity rate is 1.37%, well below the recommended 5%.

The number of new cases has markedly declined in recent months as coronavirus vaccines become more available. So far, 70.4% of Maryland’s adult population has received at least one dose of a vaccine, with nearly 3 million residents now fully vaccinated, according to a state-run tracker.
