Montgomery Co.’s COVID Positivity Rates Falls Below 2%

Montgomery County says it’s gotten its COVID-19 positivity rate under 2%.

The county’s daily seven-day average positivity rate fell to 1.97% on Monday, county officials said Monday during a weekly briefing, WTOP reported.

Montgomery’s case-transmission rate is 76.3 per 100,000 over the past seven days. County health officials said getting that number below 50 would enable them to lift any indoor mask mandates, WTOP reported.

Over the past week, the county reported 851 new coronavirus cases and an overall average of 11 new daily cases per 100,000 people, numbers touted as “the lowest in the state” by Sean O’Donnell, the county’s health and human services public health emergency preparedness manager, WTOP reported.

As of Tuesday, Montgomery County has reported 80.365 coronavirus cases and 1,630 related deaths since the outset of the pandemic last year, according to a county tracker.

Currently, 67.2% of county residents, or roughly 705,000 people, are now fully vaccinated, according to county data.
