Queen Anne’s County Health Department Investigating Possible First Coronavirus Death

On Wednesday, April 15, 2020 Queen Anne’s County Health Officer; Dr. Joseph A. Ciotola was informed of a death in our county related to COVID-19. During the investigation of the death it was discovered that the patient tested negative for COVID-19 and the death was from natural causes. The Queen Anne’s County Department of Health is working with the Maryland Department of Vital Statistics to correctly amend the death certificate. Until this process is completed the Maryland COVID-19 Data Dashboard will continue to show one death for Queen Anne’s County.

We want to emphasize the importance of continuing to social distance and do everything we can to protect our most vulnerable citizens.
