COVID-19 cases are defined per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and DC Health as confirmed, probable, or suspect based on laboratory, clinical, and exposure data. Reporting of home-based or point-of-care rapid antigen test results may not be complete or representative of case rates in the community. Probable cases can be used in conjunction with confirmed cases to track disease spread, but will be reported separately from confirmed cases to be consistent with CDC definitions.

The community is encouraged to continue reporting the results of their rapid tests at coronavirus.dc.gov/overthecounter
