The Health Department has been notified of a 9th case of coronavirus. During an investigation this afternoon, it is likely that transmission occurred either on March 11th during the Wednesday Night Combo Bowling League at Lord Calvert Bowling Lanes in Huntingtown or at a group gathering in Ocean City two days later.
People who attended the gathering in Ocean City are being individually contacted.
For anyone who was present at the Lord Calvert Bowling alley the night of March 11th, or their close contacts, the Health Department recommends the following:
For those who currently have a cough, shortness of breath, or fevers:
Contact your primary care provider or an urgent care.
Please call before going to any medical office office or urgent care.
For those who had a cough, shortness of breath or fevers between 3/13-3/26, but those symptoms have resolved:
Email the Calvert Health Department at Calvert.firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact information and a nurse will be in touch with you on Monday to get additional details.
Since it has been more than two weeks since the possible transmission at the bowling alley, for anyone who was present that night but has not developed any respiratory symptoms or fever, there is no ongoing risk of illness from potential exposure on March 11th
