Maryland Governor Larry Hogan has declared a state of emergency as three Montgomery County residents have tested positive for coronavirus.
What we know so far…
A couple in their 70s (husband and wife) and a woman in her 50s are the three confirmed cases.
The disease was contracted overseas (on a cruise). The patients returned on February 20th, were tested yesterday, and are currently quarantined in their homes in good condition.
The state of emergency is for the ability to request additional funding and resources faster.
Governor Hogan has asked the public not to panic and go to school/work as they normally would.
