Errors in Abstract, Text, and Supplement

JAMA Intern Med. 2020;180(9):1264. doi:10.1001/jamainternmed.2020.4924

In the Original Investigation titled “Contact Tracing Assessment of COVID-19 Transmission Dynamics in Taiwan and Risk at Different Exposure Periods Before and After Symptom Onset,”1 published online on May 1, 2020, the reported numbers of men and women were transposed in the Abstract and the Results section; there was an error in the definition of serial interval in the Introduction; and in the last sentence of the eMethods section of the supplementary online content, the superscript for the lower and upper bounds of the exposure period in the previous model was incorrectly labeled—the correct label for both of the bounds is 1. In addition, 2 names in the Group Information section were misspelled. These errors have been corrected.
