Glassman said the Harford cases range from people in their 20s to their 60s and beyond.

“The vast majority are isolating at home, and some have been released from isolation. Nonetheless, public health officials believe the peak in cases is at least two weeks away if not longer, and cases across Maryland have been doubling every three days since mid-March,” he said.
