“We don’t yet know who he is, but we know that he is one of us,” said County Executive Steuart Pittman. “We want his family to know that we are there for them. This is the first death for our county, but we know that it won’t be the last. This loss should strengthen our resolve to act as though each of us are carriers of COVID-19, because any of us could be. We must all work to slow the spread of this dangerous virus.”

“We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his family and friends,” said Anne Arundel County Health Officer Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman,  “This serves as an unfortunate reminder that we must practice social distancing and healthy hygiene to protect our most vulnerable neighbors.”

Additional details about the individual’s death will not be disclosed.
