Maryland continues to see increases in confirmed cases and deaths from the coronavirus, but Saturday showed a slight decline in hospitalizations, which state officials have said is key to eventually easing restrictions. There were 989 new cases in Maryland reported on Sunday. Hopefully, we will see a positive trend develop in coming days.

Garrett County celebrated and thanked our Healthcare Heroes on Saturday.  Here’s a link to some nice photos of many of them.  Thanks folks for all you do to keep us safe and our community great!
