Novel Coronavirus Update

COVID-19 virus

CDC is closely monitoring an outbreak of respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus (termed “COVID-19”) that was first detected in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China and which continues to expand.  

There are ongoing investigations to learn more. This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as it becomes available. 

While CDC considers this is a very serious public health threat, based on current information, the immediate health risk from 2019-nCoV to the general American public is considered low at this time. 

For current information, visit the CDC website on the 2019 Novel Coronavirus.

Information and updates about 2019-nCoV in Maryland — including up-to-date testing and laboratory-confirmed case numbers — are available at: health.maryland.gov/coronavirus.
