The Maryland Department of Health warned employees not to use government-issued laptops and desktops after being hit by a cyberattack over the weekend.
A bulletin instructed employees to "immediately stop" using desktop computers and laptops issued by the agency, according to the Washington Post. Workers would be given assigned workstations in the interim, the bulletin added.
"There is no evidence at this time that any data have been compromised," Andy Owen, a spokesman for the Maryland Department of Health, said in an email to the news outlet.

Officials from the Maryland Department of Information Technology and the Maryland Department of Emergency Management, along with the department of health, are working with "federal and state law enforcement" in order to investigate the incident and "gather additional information," Owen said in a statement to The Hill.
"The Maryland Security Operations Center is investigating a network security incident involving the Maryland Department of Health," Owen said.
Owen said that "certain systems had been taken offline" by the department as a result of the attack in an additional effort to be cautious.
