Dear Governor Hogan and Representatives of Allegany County, Maryland,
Re: ALLEGANY COVID CASE RATE REMAINS HIGHEST IN THE STATE
Allegany County’s COVID-19 case rate has remained the highest in Maryland for six consecutive days and has been among the highest since mid-August. Meanwhile, the Maryland jurisdictions that are experiencing lower case rates are those with a larger portion of their population fully vaccinated.
Allegany County COVID-19 Case Statistics as of September 21:
• New COVID Cases: 105 (cumulative total 8,634)
• Additional Deaths: 3 (cumulative total 229)
• Cases Per 100,000 Population: 71.01 (Maryland: 19.91)
• Positivity Rate: 12.45% (Maryland: 4.37%)
We are in significant need of a Mask Mandate.
