Confirmed and Probable Case Definitions

Confirmed Cased defined by the CDC:
• Meets confirmatory laboratory evidence. (Confirmatory laboratory evidence-detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 ribonucleic acid (SARS-CoV-2 RNA) in a clinical or autopsy specimen using a molecular amplification test) PCR- Polymerase Chain Reaction

Probable Case defined by the CDC:
• Meets clinical criteria (symptoms) AND epidemiologic linkage (Close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19 disease or member of a risk cohort as defined by public health authorities during an outbreak.) with no confirmatory laboratory testing performed for SARS-CoV-2.
• Meets presumptive laboratory evidence. (Detection of SARS-CoV-2 by antigen test in a respiratory specimen)
• Meets vital records criteria with no confirmatory laboratory evidence for SARS-CoV-2.

Confirmed and probable cases are investigated the same way and both require isolation, but probable cases do not meet the definition for confirmed cases and are NOT included in total case counts.
