There may be delays in reporting information from the local health department to the DHHR. Because case monitoring continues at the level of the local health department, it may emerge that a person tested in a particular county may not be in that county or even the state as a person in question may have crossed the state line to be tested . Such is the case in this report in the Boone and Tyler counties.

Editor’s note: The numbers received from the West Virginia DHHR include cases that have already been resolved. Therefore, these counts must be viewed as historical cases rather than active cases.

Editor’s Note 2: The total number of DHHR confirmed cases now includes probable cases that are individuals, the symptoms, and either serological (antibodies) or epidemiological (e.g. a link to a confirmed case) signs of a disease but no confirmatory tests.
