DATA NOTE: 8/5/2020
CDC Epidemiologists helped to develop new dashboard for consistent daily reporting. A few changes will be noted:
- Minor changes to COVID-19 Table by Age Range. There is now a formula in place to ensure that the age of testing is what is being reported rather than current age. This will have minor impacts based on individuals who had a birthday since March and were tested positive.
- Previous formula used for the last few days was calculating recovered as 27 days and no currently hospitalized or deceased. New formula will calculate 'RECOVERED' as those that tested positive for COVID-19 more than 28 days ago and are not deceased. We have changed the formula because we can no longer individually track current hospitalizations. We will continue to report current hospitalizations in aggregate as is already presented in the table.
Other updates to date reporting will be noted as they occur.

|Current Status*||Case Count|
|Deceased with Underlying Health Conditions||189|
