1) The new dashboard shows cases by episode date, not by the date El Dorado County Public Health was notified about the new case. Episode date is the earliest of the following dates:
symptom onset date
specimen collection date
date received or
date of death
and serves as the best approximation of the date of infection.
2) The rate of new cases in El Dorado County, as shown on the dashboard, is the number of cases received in the state’s electronic lab reporting system (CalREDIE) over a 14-day period. The 14-day case rate being used to make the determination for whether or not a county is on the monitoring list is being calculated using episode date.
