BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. – Butte County Public Health (BCPH) said it has been notified that the State’s lab reporting data issue has been corrected. BCPH started receiving the backlogged COVID-19 lab results from the State over the weekend and says it is working to process the data as quickly as possible.

The data will be added to the Butte County COVID-19 Dashboard in a phased approach.

Monday’s update will show the total case count to include the backlogged cases received over the weekend, health officials said in a news release.

Once the backlogged data is completely processed by BCPH staff, the cases will be added to the dashboard to reflect demographics, case status, and the date they would have been reported had the State not experienced a reporting issue. 

BCPH said it anticipates having the data completely processed and added to the appropriate dates by mid-to-late week.

In regards to how the backlogged data will affect Butte County's 14-day case rate, the state will calculate the county's case rate based on the episode date and not the report date. The episode date is the date of symptom onset or the date of positive laboratory result, for cases that are without symptoms.

Butte County currently has 1,238 confirmed COVID-19 cases, health officials shared Monday afternoon.
