Health Comm. Dr. Letitia Dzirasa on Curbing Baltimore's COVID-19 Surge
The surge in cases of COVID-19 caused by the highly transmissible omicron variant continues in Maryland and around the world. More than 3,300 people in Maryland are currently hospitalized because of COVID, and the statewide positivity rate hovers close to 30%.
Yesterday, about one of every three Baltimore City Schools shifted their instruction to on-line only. The plan is to return to in-person classes next Monday.
