*Clinically diagnosed cases are individuals who are not tested because they are very close contacts to someone who is lab confirmed COVID-19 positive and are experiencing symptoms. Due to their level of exposure and symptoms, the Health Department considers them positive without a COVID-19 lab test. For example, a clinically diagnosed case could be the spouse of a lab confirmed COVID-19 case.
