(1) This number reflects the total cumulative count of all COVID-19 test samples (polymerase chain reaction – PCR) resulted by Gritman Medical Center, Gritman | Moscow Family Medicine and the University of Idaho testing site operated in partnership with Gritman Medical Center.
(2) This number reflects the total cumulative count of all patients admitted to the hospital for inpatient care who tested positive for COVID-19. Hospitalizations are reported in a manner consistent with how they are reported to the regional and national public health authorities.
(3) Due to patient privacy considerations, we are not releasing daily hospital admission and discharge information at this time. As a small hospital in a rural area, publicly reporting daily admission and discharge information for a specific condition presents privacy challenges.
