We also are facilitating the sharing of information across the system so that we all benefit from our resident expertise. For example, our medical school at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, is a significant resource of guidance and expertise for the system. Officials system-wide are working together to ensure that we provide the highest level of services, response, and communications during this emergency.
I have asked all USM institutions to send me regular status reports and updates on activities in response to this situation. Also, I have asked that we all take full advantage of the guidance and resources provided by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
For more information, we have posted links to helpful information below.
