ADHS Public Information Officer Holly Poynter said in September that fluctuating numbers are not uncommon.

“Cases are assigned based on the primary residence address for an individual patient. Address information can be updated throughout a case investigation,” she said. “Sometimes this won't be identified until later in an investigation because the ‘home address’ is often used on things like insurance, which may filter down to the lab report.”

On April 1, she said while it may not look like numbers are being updated on the state's daily ZIP code map, “please keep in mind there may not be variation in each ZIP code every day.”

The agency said more than 90% of cases were mapped to the address of the patient’s residence:
