May 15, 2023

The official end to the COVID-19 federal public health emergency was Thursday, but the Carroll County Health Department announced last week that it will continue to provide related resources and information. U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra announced in February that the emergency would end May 11, and said since the peak of the Omicron surge at the end of January 2022, daily COVID-19 reported cases were down 92%, COVID-19 deaths had declined by more than 80%, and new COVID-19 hospitalizations were down nearly 80%.
