CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE.
Frederick Health is closely monitoring the current outbreak of respiratory
disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (abbreviated “COVID-19”)
that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and has now
spread worldwide to 60 locations, including the United States.
According to the most recent information, Marylanders are at a considerably
LOW health risk for contracting COVID-19. However, both the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC) and the Maryland Health Department have identified the situation
as a very serious public health threat. As a result, it is very important
that you take every precautionary step to ensure you and your loved ones
are protected and prepared as much as possible.
We continue to work through the Frederick County Health Department for
testing of COVID-19. We are in constant communication with the health
department, and we will adjust our procedures based on their guidance
as the local public health authority, and on the needs of our local community.
For more information & updates specific to COVID-19 in Maryland - including
up-to-date testing and laboratory confirmed case numbers, please visit the
official CDC website or the
official Maryland Coronavirus website.
This is a rapidly evolving situation and we will provide updates as soon
as they become available.
Thank you for your interest in supporting Frederick Health! There are many
ways you can support our patients and hospital staff during this time
of need. We have several policies in place that determine which items
we are able to accept.

How to Protect Yourself & Others

- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
