12/10/2021

Following a Dec. 1 change in the process for gathering and reporting county-level COVID-19 case counts, DSHS discovered that cases with a missing county of residence were not showing up in the new case counts on the COVID-19 dashboard. To correct this error, 16,884 new confirmed cases and 4,023 new probable cases reported Dec. 1-9 were added to statewide and county totals today. An “incomplete address” line has been added for cases with a missing address in the lab report. The issue did not affect the case positivity rate or prevent local jurisdictions from being notified of new cases in their areas.

  • DSHS is reporting 408 cumulative confirmed cases that do not have a county due to an incomplete address. These are included in statewide totals of confirmed cases.
  • DSHS is reporting 30 cumulative probable cases that do not have a county due to an incomplete address. These are included in statewide totals of probable cases.
