COVID-19 Statistics in Maryland

Though Maryland’s statistics show that children, teens, and young adults have fewer cases, this is not an excuse to have any gatherings. Though it may be tempting to see close friends, please think about those who are at a higher risk that are close around. Those above the age of 30 have significantly more confirmed cases and statistics show confirmed deaths for those over 50. Please, keep on social distancing; each and every one of us must ensure the safety of not only our family, but the entire public.
