Public Notice...

To Date: Wednesday, November 25, 4:30 PM

941-Total Cases for Madison County, MO

31-New Positive Cases


**76-Probable Cases

130-Active Cases

811-Released from Isolation

159-Long Term/Residential Facility 

*59-Total Hospitalizations


*The hospitalizations are a cumulative number for the period of the outbreak. As we interview individuals to take them out of isolation we are finding out that they have had hospitalizations since their initial interview.

**Due to the availability of Rapid PCR testing, we are now receiving reports of Rapid Antigen testing. PCR testing is the preferred method for testing of COVID-19. The antigen test is an acceptable method of testing, but is not sensitive enough to detect small amounts of the virus. Therefore the negative test has the potential to be a false negative, due to the individual not having a high enough viral load. Therefore, the CDC requires us to report these cases as probable and not positive. Probable cases are cumulative and are included in the daily increase.

***Madison County Health Department ONLY counts lab tested positive cases. If there is a person or persons living in a home with another lab confirmed positive case they are not counted as a positive case unless we receive a positive lab result for that individual(s).

Madison County Health Department would like for you to be a part of our Opioid Crisis Task Force. We have received funding through Missouri Department of Health to identify programs to help address the needs of our county so we can decrease opioid abuse/deaths.


Madison County is at high risk of experiencing a significant increase in HIV & Hepatitis C infection cases as per the Centers for Disease Control as related to injection drug use following CDC Consultation (July 2018) for our county. Madison County is ranked 58th in this national publication for these risks. We would value your ideas/input that your organization could bring to help fight against this epidemic.

Please join us in attending our task force meetings, which will be held every third Monday of the month at 5PM at Madison County Health Department.
