COVID-19 Rapid / Point of Care Test Reporting Guidance

This guidance is intended to provide authorized facilities administering rapid or point of care COVID-19 tests (e.g. antigen and nucleic acid amplification tests) with changes following the end of the federal Public Health Emergency on May 11, 2023:

  • NH facilities, laboratories, and providers no longer need to submit positive COVID-19 case reports or Electronic Laboratory Reports (ELR).
  • The NH Division of Public Health Services (DPHS) will maintain established automated connections with facilities sending SARS-CoV-2 laboratory test results. 
  • Report any pediatric or maternal deaths due to COVID-19, or patients with suspected or confirmed Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in children (MIS-C) or adults (MIS[1]A) using this Case Report Form (securely fax forms to 603-696-3154).
  • Report suspected and confirmed SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks (i.e., multiple cases with evidence of in-facility transmission), consistent with how any outbreak must be reported. 
  • Hospitals are asked to voluntarily submit data on persons hospitalized for COVID-19 to NH DPHS using the existing electronic reporting tool in order to maintain surveillance for disease severity in different patient populations, especially for pediatric and pregnant persons.
