Repeal of the Official Covid Public Health State of Emergency

As of May 11th, the federal government is repealing the Covid Public Health State of Emergency. Both locally and nationally, there have been significant declines in the number of covid infections, hospitalizations, and deaths during the past two months. No worrisome variants have emerged since last year. This post will address what the end of the state of emergency means for your health and possibly your wallet.

Calvert County has had the lowest rates of covid hospitalizations and deaths of any of Maryland’s 24 counties. If we had been “average”, close to 500 additional Calvert residents would have been hospitalized and 100 additional Calvert residents would have died during the pandemic. We have achieved such good outcomes because of the hard work of our community’s healthcare workers, close work between public health staff and community nursing homes, businesses, minority organizations, and religious congregations, in addition to the actions of residents across our county to take reasonable precautions, including keeping up with vaccinations. > Read More

Notice of Unstable Ground Conditions (Cliff)
Calvert County Health Department and the Property Owner's Association of the Chesapeake Ranch Estates (POACRE) are advising that no one should be walking along the base of the cliff (beach), north of Driftwood Beach. Access to this area is already denied by POACRE and signage posted.

There is imminent danger due to a septic tank that is precariously perched at the top of the cliff above this area. Due to the instability of the cliff, equipment cannot be safely brought onto the property to remove the tank. As a result, at some point in the near future, this tank will fall from the cliff and onto the beach. It is imperative that no one be on the beach when this happens.
