County Executive Johnny Olszewski said vaccinations administered in the Cow Palace at the Maryland State Fairgrounds played a role in a "promising decline" in key metrics.

"It's also a test to how many Baltimore County residents have been doing and continue to do the right thing... but we want and we need to see our numbers move in this positive trend direction," Olszewski said.

Though Maryland has yet to see its vaccine supplies trend up, pharmacies will be critical to the vaccination effort when that does happen. Gov. Larry Hogan was in District Heights on Wednesday, visiting one of the Giant Food locations where Marylanders with appointments are getting shots. The governor picked the location in Prince George's County for a reason. Just over 90% of District Heights residents are Black, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. Many in the Black community have voiced reluctance to take the vaccine, a reluctance grounded in a difficult relationship with medical science. At the same time, Black people are at high risk for comorbidities related to the virus and more frequently work jobs in the service sector and others that put them at risk of exposure to the vi...

President Joe Biden plans to replace the government’s fleet of cars and trucks with electric vehicles assembled in the U.S., he said Monday when signing a new “Buy America” executive order. The government is a major purchaser of vehicles. However, replacing such a fleet with American-produced EVs will be costly and take time. There are currently only a handful of all-electric vehicles being assembled in the U.S. Tesla, General Motors and Nissan Motor produce EVs domestically, while Ford Motor and others have announced plans to do so.

From 2015 to 2019, anti-Semitic incidents jumped to nearly a record high, according to the Anti-Defamation League.
