Reported date is the date the event was reported to the California Department of Public Health. Cases includes people in state and federal prisons, US Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities, US Marshal detention facilities, and Department of State Hospitals facilities. These groups are excluded from the Blueprint tier assignment calculations, which show different case and test positivity rates. A negative number of reported deaths means that deaths previously attributed to COVID-19 were determined to not be associated with COVID-19.
