As case surveillance continues at the
local health department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain
county may not be a resident of that county,
or even the state as an individual in question may have crossed the state
border to be tested. Such is the case of Jackson,
Mineral, Nicholas and Ohio counties in this report.
Please note that delays may be experienced
with the reporting of information from the local health department to DHHR.
On August 12, 2020, DHHR announced that
both confirmed and probable deaths will be reported on the dashboard, per CDC
guidelines. Probable deaths are defined as decedents who had no known
positive laboratory test for COVID-19 but whose death certificate lists
COVID-19 as a cause of death or contributing factor, or decedents who were
symptomatic and had a known exposure to COVID-19.
Confirmed and probable cases have been
reported in this report since April but will now be combined for the purpose of
this report. Data is published daily at 10 a.m. on the
dashboard located at www.coronavirus.wv.gov.
