Missouri PCR Testing Update for Providers

The Department of Health and Senior Services would like to notify Missouri health care providers of changes in guidance due to expanded COVID-19 testing availability within the state. The testing landscape has shifted significantly in the past eight weeks, and through partnerships with private laboratories, we encourage testing of both symptomatic and asymptomatic individuals. DHSS does not need to approve testing when performed outside of the State Public Health Laboratory.
