The data reflects public and non-public K-12 schools in Maryland that have COVID-19 outbreaks. Data is based on local health department reports to MDH, which may be revised if additional information becomes available.

This list does not include child care facilities or institutes of higher education.

Worcester County public schools spokesperson Carrie Sterrs issued the following statement: 

We have been closely monitoring the outbreak at Stephen Decatur High School. While the Maryland Department of Health’s website totals the number of cases associated with an outbreak, we want to ensure our families recognize the oversimplification that can occur with metrics like these.
