Outbreak Testing Data Reporting Changes

Effective Friday, November 6, 2020, Long Term Care Facilities no longer need to submit the “Long Term Care Facility COVID-19 Testing Spreadsheets” to record outbreak testing via the Redcap portal. Rather than submitting individual resident and staff data to the Section for Long-Term Care Regulation, LTCF will use the same portal (the title will change to Long Term Care Facility COVID-19 Outbreak Testing Data Reporting) to report basic data elements for each testing cycle to include:

  • Facility identifying data
  • Date outbreak testing occurred
  • # of residents tested
  • # of staff tested


For questions regarding outbreak testing and reporting, please contact your SLCR regional office  https://health.mo.gov/seniors/nursinghomes/pdf/LongTermCareRegions.pdf or tracy.niekamp@health.mo.gov.
