15,000 residents received a shot in July

ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County continues to lead Maryland with more than 85% of its eligible population at least partially vaccinated and more than 80% fully vaccinated, according to the Maryland Department of Health. Today, Howard County Government buildings fully reopened to the public. County Executive Calvin Ball has emphasized Howard County’s COVID-19 metrics and at this time does not plan to mandate masks or require vaccinations. As of August 1, Howard County’s positivity rate is 2.76%, among the lower third of jurisdictions in Maryland. Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Howard County has a moderate level of community transmission.  

Our team has worked incredibly hard to get our population vaccinated, in July alone approximately 15,000 doses were administered. With the increasing presence of the delta variant, we're reviewing all our options to encourage more of our residents and employees to get vaccinated and keep our community safe. For our residents who feel more comfortable wearing marks, they should do so. At this time, we’re reaching out to those who still have not received their shot and have 16 clinics this week around the region. The single most effective way to reduce your chance of hospitalization or death from COVID-19 is to get vaccinated.
