Totals provided by the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) and Santa Barbara County Public Health Department may differ due to a difference in reporting methods: the BOP reports both lab diagnosed and clinically diagnosed cases of COVID-19 while the County only reports lab diagnosed cases. Lab diagnoses are the number of cases reported by labs based on COVID-19 test results. Clinical diagnoses are made by doctors based on a patient's reported symptoms and are not based on a lab test result.

  1. Good evening!

    Please update your tallies and/or clarify.

    Your total number of infections is listed as 88 but the data listed does not add up to that number. Where does the error lie?

    Thanks very much!
