These figures are based on cases reported to the UO and confirmed by a public health agency.

When an individual is confirmed to have COVID-19, local health authorities determine who they may have had close contact with and guidance is provided directly to those individuals. We strongly encourage those who are contacted by local public health departments to cooperate.

Presumptive cases are people without a positive PCR test who have COVID-19-like symptoms and had close contact with a confirmed case. Though not confirmed by a positive diagnostic test, presumptive cases have a high likelihood of having COVID-19 because of the specific nature of the symptoms and known exposure.

Community transmission of the COVID-19 virus continues locally, in our region and in the United States. Wearing masks, physical distancing, isolating of positive cases, and quarantining of contacts is vital to slowing this outbreak.
