About our Data
Confirmed: Confirmed cases are those that have positive results from diagnostic, confirmatory polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests or nucleic acid amplification tests (NAT) that detect genetic material of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Illnesses with only positive antigen or positive antibody test results do not meet the definition of confirmed and are not included in the number of confirmed cases.
Probable: A person is counted as a probable case of COVID-19 if they are not positive by a confirmatory laboratory test method (for example, a PCR, or NAT test), but have met one of the following:
1. Test positive using an antigen test method.
2. Have symptoms of COVID-19 AND known exposure to COVID-19 (for example, being a close contact of someone who was diagnosed with COVID-19).
CDC Community Level Indicators: COVID-19 Community Levels can help communities and individuals make decisions based on their local context and unique needs. See the graphics below for information about how these COVID-19 Community Levels are determined at the county level. Since City of Menasha residents may reside in either Calumet or Winnebago County, the City of Menasha will take the higher level of the two counties for COVID-19 Community Level indicators should the two counties differ.
