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.
