There have been some differences this week with the numbers OHA has reported and what we report due to cases moving in and out of our county as their residence is determined and the delay in when the cases upload from the counties into OHA’s tracking system.
Weekly data (Jan 1-7th, 2021) :
✅ 24 new presumptive + confirmed positive cases
➡ 71 + cases being monitored.

Note: a presumptive case is a close contact to a known case (on our list of persons we are monitoring) who develops symptoms but does not get tested. We presume they are positive and follow them as we would a positive case.
