NOTE: As of December 31, testing for COVID-19 has been limited to the most vulnerable individuals and individuals associated with the highest risk settings. This means that confirmed cases will significantly underestimate the true number of people with COVID-19 in the TBDHU region. From this point forward, case rates and percent positivity should not be compared to dates before these testing criteria changes.

In addition, through data quality checks, 2 cases reported previously by TBDHU were removed from the TBDHU case count. This will be reflected in the overall case count today.
