Note that with the April 10 update, the State Department removed the “pending tests” category, so we no longer have a view on how many pending tests are there at our overseas posts. DOS also replaced “positive cases” with “current cases.” According to the State Department, a current case is “a person with a positive COVID-19 test or clinical diagnosis and not confirmed to have recovered.”
Instead of a “self-isolating” category, State is now calling this category “Remain at home” or individuals “advised to remain at home because of contact with a known COVID-19 case or or travel to a high-risk area.”
On the domestic side, “persons remaining at home” are no longer tracked according to State after stay at home orders/telework instructions were broadly issued.
