Community Outreach and Health Improvement has developed a new wellness program! The mission of this program called C.H.A.R.G.E. (Choosing Healthy Actions to Reach Goals of Empowerment) is to empower participants to take charge by developing positive attitudes and behaviors through a lifelong commitment to wellness. The goal is to help people (who do not necessarily have a challenging health condition or diagnosis) live fuller healthier lives. Some would like to eat healthier, some would like to get more active, and some would like to handle the stress in their lives better or just learn better ways of taking care of themselves. Whatever the reason, we are hoping that during each class participants learn something new or get the oomph they need to put what you know already into action!

There are three confirmed COVID-19 cases in Montgomery County, Maryland.

There are NO confirmed cases in Harford County.

“While today’s news may seem overwhelming, this is not a reason to panic,” continued the governor. “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. I am confident in our state’s ability to respond effectively to these three cases of coronavirus as well as to any future cases, and to be a national leader in responding to this situation and in developing treatments and perhaps even a vaccine.”

"[Last night], Governor Larry Hogan announced the state’s first positive cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and declared a state of emergency to ramp up Maryland’s coordinated response across all levels of government.

'In order to further mobilize all available state resources in response to this threat to public health, I have issued a proclamation declaring a state of emergency in Maryland,' said Governor Hogan. 'With this declaration, I am officially authorizing and directing the Maryland Department of Health and the Maryland Emergency Management Agency to ramp up coordination among all state and local agencies and enable them to fast-track coordination with our state and local health departments and emergency management teams.'

This afternoon, Maryland’s State Public Health Laboratory in Baltimore confirmed three positive cases in Montgomery County. The patients, who contracted the virus while traveling overseas, are in good condition and are in quarantine at their homes.

Earlier this week, the Hogan administration introduced emergency legislation granting the governor the authority to transfer resources from the state’s rainy day fund for Maryland’s novel coronavirus response. Additionally, the governor submitted a supplemental budget today for Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21) that requests $10 million for emergency coronavirus preparedness expenses.

'While today’s news may seem overwhelming, this is not a reason to panic,' continued the governor. '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. I am confident in our state’s ability to respond effectively to these three cases of coronavirus as well as to any future cases, and to be a national leader in responding to this situation and in developing treatments and perhaps even a vaccine.'”

Governor Larry Hogan today announced that the Maryland Public Health Laboratory has been approved for testing for COVID-19. This means that rather than waiting for test results from CDC labs in Atlanta, people may be diagnosed faster through the Maryland Department of Health labs in Baltimore.

“The ability to test in our own facility is crucial to rapid response efforts, which are at the forefront of Maryland’s strategy to minimize risk,” said MDH Secretary Robert R. Neall.

At this time, Maryland has no confirmed cases of coronavirus. Continue to stay informed by visiting health.maryland.gov/coronavirus or calling 2-1-1.
