1,515 Total Cases for Madison County, MO
6-New Positive Cases
1492-Released from Isolation
210-Long Term/Residential Facility
*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).
