Total Tested primarily represents tests that were satisfactorily performed by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) Bureau of Clinical Laboratories (BCL), along with some data from commercial labs. Commercial labs are required by law to report positive and negative tests results to ADPH. Some commercial labs do not report negative results.
Reported Deaths and Died From Illness represent the number of individuals who have a positive lab result and are now deceased. To count a person who died from COVID-19 disease, the medical record of the deceased person has to be reviewed by a physician and Infectious Disease and Outbreak staff. Once review is complete, if the death is attributed to COVID-19, the individual will also appear in Died From Illness. Reported Death totals are cumulative and will never decrease.
Testing Sites are facilities who have reported to ADPH that they are collecting specimens for COVID-19. Call the Alabama COVID-19 24/7 hotline at 1-888-264-2256 for testing sites and hours of operation near you. Interpreters are available.
