Starting on July 17, a new system for calculating the number of recovered COVID-19 cases has been implemented. Anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 and who hasn’t died or is hospitalized will be counted as recovered after a certain period of time, which changes depending on certain factors. For most people, like you and me, it’s 14 days. For the immunosuppressed, it’s 21 days. And for people over age 80 or living in long-term care homes, it's 28 days.
