•    The number of infected individuals in any municipality is likely to be much greater than indicated as this data ONLY includes persons who have been tested and whose lab results have been reported in the State’s data system.
•    This data will not match any other report since cases are continually entering the system and local health departments may reassign place of residence as appropriate during their investigations.
