COVID-19 Community Level: LOW

COVID-19 Community TRANSMISSION Level: HIGH

COVID-19 Community Levels are a tool to help communities decide what prevention steps to take based on the latest data. Levels can be low, medium, or high and are determined by looking at hospital beds being used, hospital admissions, and the total number of new COVID-19 cases in an area. (Note: The level reported on this page is based on local daily calculations. CDC reports this metric on Thursdays and their data can lag approximately 2 days)

At our current level, people should:

  • Consider wearing a mask indoors in public places. CDC recommends that people who are at high risk of complications from COVID talk to their healthcare provider about wearing a mask or taking other precautions. 
  • Get vaccinated/boosted
  • Get tested if you have symptoms

Hospitals, nursing homes, and healthcare settings are instructed to follow CDC's COVID-19 Community Transmission Level. People who are immunocompromised may want to talk with their healthcare provider about their level of risk, which metric is best for them to follow, and what steps they should take to protect themselves.

Masks should still be worn by people with symptoms of COVID-19, a positive COVID-19 test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19. Additionally, people may still choose to wear a mask at any time based on personal preference, informed by personal level of risk.

Maryland Department of Health (MDH) will provide COVID-19 data reporting on business days during the 10 a.m. hour only. Complete weekend data are frequently not reported by MDH until Tuesday.

Data in this section will be updated daily based on the most recently available information. All data are preliminary and are subject to change based on additional reporting. Data is available at opendata.maryland.gov

Data reflects cases and deaths among Frederick County residents only. Hospitalizations shown are for Frederick Health Hospital and reflect all patients who have tested positive for COVID-19. Hospital data is delayed one day. Frederick Health Hospital ICU bed capacity is currently 19 beds normally and can be expanded if staffing permits. Additional hospital data available at frederickhealth.org/COVID19.

Data for ZIP codes with 7 or fewer cases are suppressed according to Maryland Department of Health guidelines. 

Death data are presented by date death was reported. Death data are updated as amendments to the death record are received. Change in deaths in the last 24 hours does not mean that the deaths occurred in the last 24 hours, and some reports of deaths may be delayed. The -1 death reported on Jan. 28, 2021 was due to a case/death being reassigned to another jurisdiction.

5/27/2021: The Maryland Department of Health (MDH) Vital Statistics Administration (VSA) has revised the state’s COVID-19 data to include deaths that were not properly classified by medical certifiers over the past year. VSA identified these deaths as COVID-19 deaths through an information reconciliation process utilizing other sources of data. The May 27 increase of +12 deaths reflects the additional deaths that have been included.
