Confirmed case data are from the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and community level data are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Hennepin County Public Health receives updated data once per week and updates this dashboard on Friday mornings.
Data are for cases that were tested and returned positive. At-home test results are not counted by MDH and not all suspected cases of COVID-19 are tested. These data are not representative of the total number of people who have or have had COVID-19.
All data are preliminary and may change as cases are investigated — data in the last 7 days may be incomplete.
Rates should not be viewed as the final case or mortality rate of COVID-19; they provide ongoing monitoring of the situation as of the last date updated.
Certain information is obtained through case interviews. During periods of extensive community transmission, for example late October 2020 through mid-December 2020, reported cases exceed the capacity of case investigation teams. In particular, race/ethnicity and living setting (e.g., long-term care) data are increasingly missing during these periods. Case interviews are now focused on people under 18 years old, hospitalizations, deaths, and people with breakthrough or variants.
