    Current Maryland Weekly Source Control Metric for Healthcare Settings 

    MDH guidance: Broad facility-wide source control should be implemented in all patient care areas and patient-facing healthcare settings, including outpatient and longterm care, when the statewide combined weekly respiratory virus-associated hospitalization rate (as calculated by CDC​) meets or exceeds 10 hospitalizations per 100,000 residents.

    Broad facility-wide source control can be discontinued once the combined weekly respiratory virus-associated hospitalization rate has been below 10 hospitalizations per 100,000 residents for two consecutive weeks.
