Dr. Faheem Yonus: During coronavirus pandemic, leave denial, leave panic. Live in preparedness [Commentary]

Coronavirus is now a pandemic. And based on the calls and texts that I am receiving, it seems many are living in denial or panic. As an infectious disease expert, I suggest that between the extremes of denial or panic, there is a place called preparedness; we should live there.

Today I announced further actions to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Maryland. As of this morning, we now have 107 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Maryland—an 88 percent increase in the past 48 hours. Among today’s new cases is a 5-year old girl in Howard County who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Yesterday afternoon, as chairman of the National Governors Association, I convened and led a call with my fellow governors across the country. The governors have agreed to five immediate priorities that we are requesting of the federal government, which we will be taking directly to the president and the vice president on a call with all the governors today. I will also be reaching out to leaders of both houses of Congress later this afternoon.

Despite all of our repeated warnings for weeks, and in spite of the rapid escalation of this crisis across our state, the nation, and the world, some people are treating this like a vacation or a spring break with parties, cookouts, and large gatherings. Let me be very clear—if you are engaged in this, you are in violation of state law and you are endangering the lives of your fellow Marylanders.

New actions announced today include reducing the size of public gatherings to 10 people; requiring the closure of all enclosed shopping malls; restricting access to the BWI Airport terminal to ticketed passengers and employees only; urging citizens to utilize transit for essential travel only; and relaunching the Maryland Unites initiative to connect Marylanders with resources and highlight stories of generosity and compassion amid the crisis.

Governor Larry Hogan
03/16/2020

Governor Larry Hogan

Today I announced additional actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Maryland. They may sound extreme, and they will be terribly disruptive, but they are also absolutely necessary to save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.

I have ordered the closure of all bars and restaurants in the state, as well as fitness centers, spas, and theaters, effective at 5:00 p.m. today. The order allows for restaurants to continue carry-out, drive-thru, and delivery services, and allows for eateries in health care facilities to remain open.

Effective immediately, gatherings of more than 50 people, including social, community, spiritual, religious, recreational, leisure, and sporting gatherings, are prohibited at all locations and venues. These emergency orders carry the full force of law and will be strictly enforced.

We are marshaling every tool in the arsenal of public health to combat this crisis. I have issued an omnibus public health order that includes increasing hospital capacity, activating the Maryland Responds Medical Reserve Corps, & lifting restrictions on healthcare practitioners.

I am prohibiting utility providers from shutting off any residential customer’s service or charging any residential late fees, and prohibiting Maryland courts from ordering the eviction of any tenant who can show that their failure to pay rent was the result of COVID-19.

At the direction of Major General Timothy Gowen, as of Monday, 1,000 Maryland National Guard soldiers and airmen are fully activated and another 1,200 guardsmen are currently in a state of enhanced readiness.

It is impossible to know how long this threat will continue. What I do know is that we cannot afford to wait to take action.

A comprehensive list of today’s actions can be found here: https://governor.maryland.gov/2020/03/16/governor-hogan-orders-closure-of-bars-and-restaurants-announces-unprecedented-public-health-surge-to-combat-covid-19-crisis/

Though Marylanders may be eager to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this weekend, please take every precaution to protect yourself and those around you during this public health emergency.

I have issued an executive order requiring that all gatherings of over 250 people be canceled or postponed. Social distancing, or maintaining physical distance between yourself and others, can help slow the spread of COVID-19 within our communities.

If you plan to celebrate this weekend, please remember to wash your hands frequently, cover your coughs and sneezes, and stay home if you’re feeling ill.

Harford County Executive Barry Glassman today issued the following update on the COVID-19 coronavirus:

“The Maryland Department of Health informed us today that Harford County has its second reported case of coronavirus COVID-19. The Harford County case is a 69-year-old who is a family member of the county’s first reported case, an 86-year-old woman who traveled overseas and remains hospitalized. The 69-year-old remains isolated at home and is asymptomatic.

Public health officials have warned that the number of cases will rise as more people are tested, and the state has begun to report new cases on their website https://coronavirus.maryland.gov/.

I encourage all Harford County citizens to continue following guidelines to limit the spread of the virus in our community. Stay calm, and stay informed through credible sources including the Harford County Health Department website https://harfordcountyhealth.com/coronavirus/.”

Today I announced a series of major actions to protect public health and safety and limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in Maryland. A comprehensive list can be found here: https://governor.maryland.gov/2020/03/12/governor-hogan-announces-major-actions-to-protect-public-health-limit-spread-of-covid-19-pandemic/

My first and highest priority is protecting the health, the safety, and the welfare of the people of Maryland. We are all in this together, and we cannot stop the spread of this virus without each and every one of you doing your part. But I want you all to know that we will get through this together. Our state has already faced and overcome daunting challenges before, and we will do so again.

Times are tough right now. We get it. But it’s important to understand that having flu-like symptoms does not necessarily mean you have #COVID19. This is how we can help. If you are having flu-like symptoms, please contact your physician if you're worried. If he/she thinks you need to go to the hospital for further screening, UM Upper Chesapeake Medical Center now offers a mobile specimen lab where individuals can remain in their car while being tested. However, it's extremely important to know the following:

• This is NOT a screening operation and we will not provide walk up service.
• All patients must contact their Primary Care Provider to be screened via phone or HIPAA compliant video call.
• Only those referred by a physician will be able to go to the UM Upper Chesapeake Medical Center mobile specimen lab collection site (with appropriate lab orders).
• We will go live with this operation Friday, March 13 and then shift to Mondays-Wednesday-Thursday from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Our priority is protecting the health and safety of our patients, visitors, staff and volunteers. You can read more about our mobile specimen lab and visitor restrictions in the latest The Aegis article at bit.ly/2xAiYb1.

After talking with Bel Air Director of Administration, Mike Krantz, we have decided to cancel the SSO’s concert this weekend on the 14th. This is a great disappointment, of course!

A main reason for this decision is the health and well-being of our community. Also, MD Governor Hogan has asked that events involving large groups of people be cancelled or postponed.

If you purchased tickets already, a separate communication will be coming out shortly with more information for you.

Meanwhile, be safe and well!

Today, 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."
