Positive Cases are the number of INDIVIDUALS who GET TESTED and have a positive test result. If an individual has multiple tests and receives multiple positive test results, it only counts as ONE positive case.
Positive Antibody tests are NOT reported as positive cases.
Our Dashboard totals include ONE presumptive death to date, but it is NOT included in the number of positive cases. Presumptive deaths are those for which x-ray, scans, and clinical symptoms all point to COVID-19 but for which no positive test is on record.
For cases from Valparaiso University, the Total Positives of students, faculty and staff that live on campus will be attributed to Center Township. For students, faculty and staff who live off campus, the Total Positives will be attributed to the township in which they reside.
The Total Positives include the inmates at the Porter County Jail who tested positive. These cases are being attributed to Washington Township as that is where the Jail is located.
