Point of Care Antigen Reporting

Effective Friday, November 13, 2020, Long-Term Care Facilities (SNF, ICF, ALF and RCF) that are reporting point of care antigen testing results into the NHSN portal, no longer need to duplicate that reporting via the DHSS secured file transfer.

At this time, DHSS asks that long-term care facilities report all positive staff and resident results, for POC and PCR testing, via the Electronic COVID-19 Case Reporting portal to ensure timely notification to DRL and DCPH for outbreak assistance.

DHSS is working on comprehensive guidance for all long-term care communities related to reporting requirements. If you have any questions related to this, please contact tracy.niekamp@health.mo.gov.
