    Marylanders if Sat Feb 29th you went to Village at Rockville & attended an event between 12pm-6 pm you should per the State immediately contact your doctor. Please view the press conference linked below for further details. These cases relate to interaction with Bucks County closures, it appears the Texas cases and an Egyptian Cruise are also related. The 3 Maryland positive cases are not community spread. 7 tests were returned negative today including the 3 children who visited Westchester. 8 cases are still pending.
    This is a confirmed #COVID-19 exposure. Individuals who visited during this time period should monitor themselves for symptoms & contact 410-517-3720 with questions.

        Low-Risk Exposure of COVID-19 Reported at The Village at Rockville

        March 7, 2020

        The Village at Rockville—A National Lutheran Community was notified by the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) late this afternoon that a Maryland resident who tested positive for coronavirus attended a public event at The Village at Rockville on Friday, February 28 from noon to 6 p.m. Earlier reports incorrectly indicated the event was on Saturday, February 29.

        The MDH has expressed that the risk of potential exposure during this event was low. However, taking the best practice in precaution, The Village at Rockville is working closely with the MDH to follow their recommended procedures for monitoring conditions of residents and team members who attended the event through March 14, 2020. There are no residents or team members at The Village at Rockville who have been diagnosed with the coronavirus nor are any exhibiting symptoms of the virus.

        “Our primary focus is to maintain our highest level of well-being for our residents and team members,” said Kyle Hrebren, executive director at The Village Rockville. “We will remain diligent in taking the necessary precautions to ensure the health and safety of our community and the greater Rockville community.” Prior to this notification, according to Karen Sroka, director of clinical services for NLCS, The Village at Rockville has been diligently educating residents and staff members weekly and following both the CDC and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recommendations.

        As this event also included guests from the greater community, the MDH also requested that those guests contact their health care provider or the Maryland Emergency Agency Call Center at 410-517-3720. These individuals will also continue to be monitored for symptoms through March 14.

        “The MDH has confirmed that those who attended the event do not need to be self-quarantined unless symptoms of a fever, cough or a respiratory illness occur,” Hreben said. Additionally, the MDH has also confirmed that those who did not attend the event do not need to self-monitor.”

        In an abundance of caution, The Village at Rockville has postponed all gathering and public events until March 14. Additionally, visiting hours will be restricted hours of 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

                          NIH Employee tests positive.


                          Sunday, March 15, 2020
                          NIH Reports First Known Employee with COVID-19 Infection

                          NIH informed its staff early this morning that it has its first known case of an NIH staff member who has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. NIH has reported the case to state and local public health officials. While this is an unfortunate development, it is not surprising, and NIH expects that there will be more cases of infection among NIH staff.

                          The individual works for the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases but is not involved in patient care. The individual is quarantined at home and doing well. Importantly, the individual was asymptomatic while at work, which is believed to lower the risk of transmission. After developing symptoms, the individual took the appropriate action, stayed home and called the NIH Occupational Medical Service (OMS), which is managing potential COVID-19 infection among NIH staff. OMS arranged testing, and the result was positive. NIH commends the infected individual for following the NIH guidance, which has allowed us to take swift action.

                          OMS and the NIH Clinical Center Hospital Epidemiology Service have identified staff who work in close proximity to this individual and may have been exposed. Those individuals have been contacted and will be screened for symptoms as soon as possible and asked to self-quarantine at home if their exposure constitutes a significant risk of infection according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. OMS will monitor them closely for infection.

                          NIH will handle each case with the utmost respect to privacy while also informing potentially affected staff and taking swift measures to mitigate spread of the virus. NIH is reminding staff to follow the CDC guidance about COVID-19 to prevent illness and recognize symptoms.

                          About the National Institutes of Health (NIH): NIH, the nation's medical research agency, includes 27 Institutes and Centers and is a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NIH is the primary federal agency conducting and supporting basic, clinical, and translational medical research, and is investigating the causes, treatments, and cures for both common and rare diseases.
