In the report “Trends in COVID-19 Cases, Emergency Department Visits, and Hospital Admissions Among Children and Adolescents Aged 0–17 years — United States, August 2020–August 2021,” on page 1252, in the Table, the second footnote should have read, “ ED visit data are from the National Syndromic Surveillance Program (NSSP). Data are limited to ED visits with a discharge diagnosis. Data from Hawaii and Ohio are not included. Fewer than 50% of facilities in California, Iowa, Minnesota, and Oklahoma report to NSSP. In HHS Region 7, fewer than 50% of all ED visits have a discharge diagnosis.” On page 1253, the title for Figure 2 should have read, “Number of COVID-19 hospitalizations and percentage of COVID-19 hospitalizations resulting in intensive care unit admission or invasive mechanical ventilation among persons aged 0–17 years, by age group — United States, August 1, 2020–August 21, 2021.”
