This question has two different answers.

  1. The Gallatin City-County Health Department and the State of Montana DPHHS calculate reported cases differently. At GCCHD, we use the reported date when counting cases, which means our total case count can change from day to day if we are busy and/or cases come in after hours. The State of Montana reports cases on the day they receive the information. For example, if a case comes in at 6:00 p.m. on Friday evening, the GCCHD would process that case on Monday during business hours and submit to the state. GCCHD would count that case towards the daily case count on Friday (since that’s when it was reported), but the State of Montana would count that case on Monday (the date it was reported to them).
  2. GCCHD has chosen to include out-of-county and out-of-state residents who are isolated and recovering in Gallatin County in the case counts. While the State of Montana DPHHS does not include these cases.

This is not to say that any one entity is incorrectly publishing the data, it merely explains how the data is obtained at the local level, shared to the state level, and reported to the communities.

A “recovered” case means that a person who tested positive for COVID-19 has been released from isolation. It’s important to note that even when people are released from isolation, many of them continue to feel the effects of COVID-19 infection long after they are released from isolation.

The Gallatin City-County Health Department calculates the number of recovered cases as the number of total cases minus any active cases, current hospitalizations and deaths.
