**Oregon Health Authority Definitions: **
A presumptive case is a close contact to a known case – on our list of persons we are monitoring – who develops symptoms but do not get tested. We presume they are positive and follow them as we would a positive case.
Documented recoveries- person is considered recovered after 90 days and Oregon Health Authority makes that determination.
