note that delays may be experienced with the reporting of information from the
local health department to DHHR. 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 Cabell,
Upshur, and Wyoming counties in this report.
