Have Questions?

Q: What’s the difference between confirmed and probable COVID-19 cases?
A: Confirmed cases are those where individuals had a positive molecular test result. Probable cases are those where individuals had a positive antigen test result, but no positive molecular test result. Learn more about testing from the FDA here.
Q: Have probable cases always been included in the state's COVID-19 case count?
A: No. The Washington State Department of Health began including probable cases in its COVID-19 case count in December 2020.
Q: What’s the difference between confirmed and suspected COVID-19 deaths?
A: Confirmed COVID-19 deaths are those with a positive COVID-19 test (molecular or antigen) and have COVID-19 listed on the death certificate. Suspected COVID-19 deaths are those that occur within 28 days of a positive COVID-19 test.
Q: Are suspected deaths ever removed from the state’s COVID-19 death count?
