The number of patients being treated for COVID-19 at Carroll Hospital has risen dramatically over the past month, now approaching numbers not seen since the post-holiday peak of the pandemic. In addition, more Carroll County Public Schools students have the virus than at any time since the school system began releasing weekly data. Thirty-three Carroll Hospital patients had COVID-19 on Wednesday, seven more than the 26 reported Tuesday. The metric had been down to three on March 9. A week later it was 11, and then the number had doubled to 22 by the last full week in March. New cases of COVID-19 have been on the rise in Carroll the past five weeks after seven consecutive weeks of declining came numbers.
