The Barry-Eaton District Health Department defines "Active" as the person recorded as a case is still considered in the infectious period and "Closed" as the person recorded as a case is no longer considered in the infectious period. 

The MDHHS order states the following: “School Associated Case” means a case of probable or confirmed COVID-19 amongst students, teachers, staff members, coaches, volunteers, or any other person who was present on school property or at a school function under circumstances that may result in the transmission or contraction of COVID-19 during their infectious period.  The Barry-Eaton District Health Department defines a "confirmed" case as a person who has a positive diagnostic laboratory test for COVID-19 and a “probable” case as (1) a person who has a positive antigen test (i.e. rapid test) or (2) an epidemiologic link to a known case of COVID-19 AND has symptoms consistent with a COVID-19 diagnosis.
