CLARIFICATION: Reporting on Resolved Cases from Department of Health officials:

“We had previously reported that the number of Resolved Cases reflected the number of people who completed their Isolation Orders after testing positive for COVID-19.

“However, the number of individuals in Isolation includes people who have tested positive AND their close contacts who are presumed to be positive. For example, close family members are often placed in Isolation without being tested. The number of Resolved Cases reflects both of these populations. It is inaccurate to subtract the number of Resolved Cases from the Confirmed Cases because a growing number of the Resolved Cases were never Confirmed Cases”.
