Delays may
be experienced with the reporting of information from the local health
department to DHHR. As case surveillance continues at the local health
department level, it may reveal that those tested in a certain county may not
be a resident of that county, or even the state as an individual in question
may have crossed the state border to be tested
. Such is the case of Logan
County in this report.
