COVID-19 Case Definition

As of May 7, 2020, confirmed and probable cases are included in the case totals. From May 7 to August 31, 2020, in accordance with the CDC surveillance case definition at the time, a confirmed case is defined as a person who tested positive by molecular testing for the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), which causes Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). A probable case is defined as a person with: a) presumptive lab evidence (serology) with COVID-19 symptoms or epi-linked to a confirmed case, or b) no lab testing with COVID-19 symptoms and epi-linked to a confirmed case.

As of September 1, 2020, in accordance with an updated CDC surveillance case definition, a confirmed case is defined as a person who tested positive by PCR. A probable case is defined as a person with: a) presumptive lab evidence (antigen) or b) no lab testing but meeting clinical case criteria and is epi-linked (see CDC/CSTE surveillance definition). Cases are based on individual people, not on the number of tests. A person with multiple tests is only counted once.

Cluster Identification

KDHE received lots of feedback, both positive and negative, after releasing the locations of active outbreaks last week on September 9. We know people appreciate the transparency and information, and that it allows Kansans to make informed decisions when assessing personal risk. KDHE staff has taken the feedback we received and is currently assessing ways in which we can report this information in a way that reflects current COVID-19 case increases. As we assess our process, we will not be releasing outbreak names and locations September 16, but anticipate doing so next Wednesday, September 23.
