Two legislative committees that oversee the Maryland Department of Health plan to grill top state officials about an attack that disabled the agency’s computers, top lawmakers said on Tuesday. Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) has revealed little about the Dec. 4 attack, which has significantly hampered the agency’s operations. Health department employees initially were told to stay off their computers as a precaution. Although some systems have come back online, the agency has not posted COVID-19 case rates, testing or mortality data since Dec. 3.
