COVID-19 Test Result Reporting Rule Update

  • 1.  COVID-19 Test Result Reporting Rule Update

    COVID-19 Testing Partners,

    An update to Utah's Communicable Disease Rule 386-702 has gone into effect, updating Utah's reporting requirements for SARS-CoV-2. As such, the reportability of certain tests and results for COVID-19 events has changed. This change is effective immediately and is as follows:

    For rapid antigen tests: Only positive results are now reportable to UDHHS
    For serology tests: No serology tests are reportable, rapid or otherwise.
    For rapid nucleic acid tests (NAAT): Only positive results are now reportable to UDHHS
    For high complexity nucleic acid tests (NAAT): All test results are still reportable to UDHHS

    Thank you for your on-going effort to provide testing to our communities,

    --
