Things to remember about the case count

There are still a limited number of COVID-19 tests in the state, and health care providers are only testing the residents that meet all the screening recommendations from the CDC. 

There are also many tests still pending. Even as testing capacity has increased in recent days, it still takes a few days to get back results because the number of people getting tested has also increased.

Local health departments are also monitoring people who suspect they have COVID-19 but who have not been able to get tested.
