With the launch of the 2023-2024 school year, the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, and a flu season that is just weeks away, the Baltimore County Department of Health and Human Services is urging everyone to take precautions to help avoid a potential ‘tripledemic.’

Residents are advised to remain vigilant against emerging infectious diseases including COVID-19, influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and are encouraged to take precautions that include practicing these FACTS:

  • Frequently wash hands.

  • Always get annual vaccinations.

  • Cover your coughs and sneezes.

  • Take time off from work/school if you do not feel well.

  • Seek medical attention if symptoms worsen.

Avoiding large indoor gatherings and wearing a mask are additional options to consider. Working together to contain the potential spread of infectious diseases helps make Baltimore County a healthier place for children, adults and families.
