Coronavirus (COVID-19)

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.

To follow the latest details regarding the coronavirus outbreak, please visit the official CDC website or the official Maryland Coronavirus website.

For more information & updates specific to COVID-19 in Maryland - including up-to-date testing and laboratory confirmed case numbers - please visit health.maryland.gov/coronavirus.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and we will provide updates as soon as they become available.
