Updated November 29, 2021
Updated weekdays at 11 a.m., with data current as of 4 a.m. the previous business day.
In observance of the holiday, we did not update the data on this page on Thursday, November 25. Updates posted today are for data as of 4 .a.m. Friday, November 26.

Data is for cases that were tested and returned positive. At-home test results are not counted by MDH.

All data is preliminary and may change as cases are investigated. Many data points are collected through an online survey or during case interviews; however, not all cases are interviewed. Case interviews are focused on people under 18 years old, hospitalizations, deaths, and people with vaccine breakthrough or variants. Data presented below is for all cases, regardless of interview status.

Positive PCR test results are considered confirmed cases. Positive antigen test results are considered probable cases. All probable cases get the same public health follow-up and recommendations as cases confirmed by PCR tests.

Daily Update:

Because all data is preliminary and some reports require verification before counting as a case, the change in number of cumulative positive cases and deaths from one day to the next may not exactly equal the newly reported cases or deaths.

In observance of the holiday, we did not update the data on this page on Thursday, November 25. Newly reported cases include those from 4 a.m. Wednesday, November 24 to 4 a.m. Friday, November 26.

We continuously receive case reports and work to confirm, process, and report them as quickly as possible. Newly reported cases may not include every case reported to us since the last data update.
