The DPHSS overall count also includes an additional two cases of COVID-19 that have been clinically diagnosed. While these cases have tested negative, they have imaging findings consistent with COVID-19, display typical COVID-19 symptoms, have epidemiological links to previously confirmed cases, and are being treated as COVID-19 cases. The overall count also includes nine positive cases that were tested by the Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) in San Diego.

To date, a total of 111 cases tested positive and two were clinically diagnosed with 25 recoveries and four deaths.
