Connecticut DPH Reinstates Requirement That COVID-19 Tests Be Ordered by Physician or Other Authorized Practitioner and That Results Be Reported to the Ordering Practitioner

The new Acting Director of Public Health in Connecticut, rescinded a prior May 6, 2020, Department of Public Health (DPH) order that had eliminated the requirement that a request for collection or analysis of a COVID-19 specimen be made by a licensed physician or other licensed person authorized by law to make diagnoses, and eliminated the obligation to report the COVID-19 results to the licensed provider who ordered the testing.

Accordingly, the rescission reinstates the requirement that a request for collection or analysis of a COVID-19 specimen be made by a licensed physician or other licensed person authorized by law to make diagnoses, including, but not limited to, physician assistants, advanced practice registered nurses, and pharmacists, and reinstates the obligation to report the COVID-19 results to the licensed provider who ordered the testing.
