FW: NC DHHS Important Notice: LTCF Reporting of Antigen Test Results
Your facility has received, or may receive in the future, a point-of-care antigen detection device for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. There is a requirement for all entities (including LTCFs) to report antigen test results. Facilities are required to report antigen test results electronically, but until they are able to do so, NC DHHS has developed an interim plan to report via an Excel spreadsheet. Please see this PDF with the NCDHHS Interim Guidance for Antigen Test Results Reporting, as well as an Excel spreadsheet to record your facility’s antigen test results. The above guidance is also posted here: https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/guidance#long-term-care-facilities.
If you need consultation regarding this process, please email your question to: LabTeam@dhhs.nc.gov.
