Yesterday, Maryland’s State Public Health Laboratory confirmed three positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Montgomery County. The patients, who contracted the virus while traveling overseas, are in good condition and are in quarantine at their homes. “While today’s news may seem overwhelming, this is not a reason to panic,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “Marylanders should go to work or go to school tomorrow just as they normally would. At the same time, I want to continue to remind everyone to prepare themselves and continue to stay informed."
