Frederick County now has 151 cases and four deaths. Cases have been reported in three nursing homes in the county, with both residents and staff testing positive. Three of the deaths in the county have been linked to cases in nursing homes.
Carroll County continues to see an increase in deaths, with 16 reported as of Tuesday morning. Nearly all of Carroll County's deaths are linked to an outbreak at the Pleasant View Nursing Home near Mount Airy.
