As was reported yesterday, in the largest single-day spike, the Allegany County Health Department has reported the number of COVID-19 cases has risen to 31. This includes additional cases at the Cumberland Healthcare Center on Winifred Road, which now reports 9 patients and four staff members infected. Of the four staff members, one is a Mineral County resident, who is not part of the official count for Allegany County. In an unrelated case, a fifth Mineral County resident, who is employed in Allegany County, has tested positive for COVID-19. There are seven Mineral County residents who are infected.  A contact investigation is underway and individuals who may have been exposed will be notified. And, a reminder: Governor Hogan’s executive order, requiring everyone to wear a face covering when entering a retail establishment or when using public transportation, goes into effect tomorrow morning at 7 a.m.
