8 confirmed cases March 27 2020

One additional Calvert resident was confirmed to have coronavirus, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 8. This resident was contacted immediately after the lab result was available. Since the time this person was capable of transmitting the virus, his/her only contacts were with immediate family members and two other people. All contacts have been reached by Health Department nurses. None are ill, and all are self-isolating for 14 days.

Please keep in mind that Calvert is somewhat atypical in that 2/3 of our residents who are employed work outside of our county. This changes many factors both in exposure to infection and potential for transmission. Most of our residents work in St. Mary’s, Prince George’s County, Washington, DC, Anne Arundel, and Northern Virginia. Other than St. Mary’s, each of these jurisdictions have higher rates of infection than seen in Southern Maryland. This will likely contribute to additional cases in Calvert over the next upcoming weeks and months.
