    Is any contact tracing being done? Where are the hotspots in Frederick and Montgomery County aside from nursing and residential facilities. Numbers are still going up. Why? Governor Hogan is a wonderful leader but he needs to get into the weeds on this if we are to bring numbers down in the county. Why is he opening up when we are still having a rise in Covid cases?

    Suzanne,
    To clarify for perspective on MOCO deaths is that and I assume it is since Hogan Emergency Date and NOT weekly? Good format reporting .
