Of the 361 additional cases reported Sunday, 328 are confirmed while the other 33 are probable cases. The county has not said whether any of the 328 confirmed cases are from the Department of State Health Services backlog.

The county began reporting both probable and confirmed cases in August at the request of the state health department. Probable cases, the county said, account for a variety of real-world situations and could highlight cases in the community that may otherwise go unreported.
