We are no longer reporting on the number of Persons Under Investigation (PUIs - individual who have been tested and is awaiting results and monitoring symptoms. They are under isolation at home or hospitalized.). This is because several healthcare providers are testing patients if they have symtoms consistent with COVID-19 and we do not have a very accurate number of PUIs at any given point. We are tracking these numbers and are in constant contact with our healthcare providers to monitor our local COVID-19 exposure risk.
