Larry Hogan’s office Thursday show that the percentage of COVID-19 tests that came back positive Wednesday was 3.83%, bringing the statewide seven-day average to 4.03%, the lowest level since the pandemic began.

    The Pentagon said Wednesday that 18- to 24-year-old service members are testing positive for the coronavirus at a higher rate than the general population but suffering lower rates of hospitalization and mortality. “As a community, transmission rate has gone up,” said Defense coronavirus task force medical adviser Air Force Brig.
