‼️INBOX: Per a press release from Speaker Jones' office, the joint committee that will approve or deny universal masking in schools will meet Sept. 14, "absent action by Governor Hogan to waive the legally required ten business day waiting period for emergency regulations."

Garrett County's vaccination rate edged up today. It's *almost* 39%. The positivity rate is just under 11%, the 2nd highest in Maryland. Check out my series on #VaccineHesitancy in the westernmost corner of Maryland, which aired this week on @WYPR881FM bit.ly/Missed-Shots twitter.com/RachelBaye/sta…
Garrett County Health Officer Bob Stephens told me this kind of low turnout at mobile vaccine clinics is common. We heard from him in my story that aired earlier this week: wypr.org/wypr-news/2021… twitter.com/RachelBaye/sta…
The Garrett County Health Department had a mobile vaccine clinic at the county agriculture fair in early August. Over a collective 30 hours at the fair, they vaccinated 23 people. Learn why people say they don't want the shot in my story for @WYPR881FM: bit.ly/3BilUEJ

In the coming weeks I'll be looking at what Marylanders are facing without eviction protections they'd relied on throughout COVID and why. Here's the first: a quick-ish look back at the changes housing advocates had hoped for but never saw. @WYPR881FM wypr.org/wypr-news/2021…

Don’t take my word for it. Listen to Dr. Marjorie Fridkin of Garrett Regional Medical Center debunk the myths and answer questions about the delta variant and the vaccines. wypr.org/wypr-news/2021…
No, the vaccines won’t cause fertility issues. Yes, if you had COVID, you should still get vaccinated. Yes, if you’re young and healthy, you could still get severely sick with COVID. twitter.com/RachelBaye/sta…
When I talked with residents in Garrett County about the COVID-19 vaccine a few weeks ago, I heard a lot of rumors and misinformation. So I spoke with the top doctor at the local hospital to debunk the myths. For @WYPR881FM: bit.ly/3musZh9

A few weeks ago, I spent some time talking to people in Garrett County, Maryland, about the COVID-19 vaccines. The first of a few stories based on those conversations aired this morning on @WYPR881FM. You can read (and listen when audio is up) here: bit.ly/3jcaXyu. twitter.com/RachelBaye/sta…
Just over 38% of Garrett County residents are fully vaccinated, making it the least vaccinated county in Maryland. But health officials' efforts to vaccinate residents are stymied by mistrust in government and medical providers. For @WYPR881FM: bit.ly/3jcaXyu
∙ Baltimore will start giving boosters the week of 9/20, will prioritize health care workers, first responders & other phase 1 workers ∙ the city's new COVID-19 cases rose nearly 500% over 4 wks, with 20-29 yr olds & kids under 10 getting sick the most wypr.org/wypr-news/2021…

Worth nothing in the Census that Anne Arundel County with 588,261 population is overtaking Baltimore City with 585,708. This would make AA the 4th largest jurisdiction in Maryland, behind Montgomery, Prince George's and Baltimore counties. The city would be 5th. twitter.com/justin_fenton/…
