Case Classifications:

Confirmed Cases: A person with a positive laboratory test result for COVID-19 using a molecular amplification technique (e.g., PCR, NAAT)

Probable: Symptomatic people that have epidemiologic risk factors or evidence of infection detected through a non-molecular amplification tests and deceased people whose death certificate lists COVID-19 or SARS-CoV-2 as contributing to death without laboratory confirmation. 4/20/20 Update on Probable Cases: When a person is classified as Probable, if they never get tested they will remain counted as Probable. Those who are tested and test positive, will shift to Confirmed. If they test negative, they will no longer be considered a case.
