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 Braxton, Calhoun, Clay,
Doddridge, Hampshire, and Summers counties in this report.
