    Point-of-care testing

    Facilities administering point-of-care (POC) testing for COVID-19 must report all their positive test results to Clark County Public Health and Washington State Department of Health.

    A point-of-care testing facility is one that administers POC tests, such as rapid tests for diagnosing COVID-19, which provide results within minutes of the test being administered.

    Washington Administrative Code WAC 246-101 requires laboratories to report all COVID-19 results. This reporting requirement applies to all facilities conducting point-of-care or rapid screening tests for COVID-19, including clinics that are not traditionally a lab, such as long-term care facilities, schools, and correctional facilities.

    Over-the-counter tests (those performed and interpreted by the patient) are considered point-of-care tests when they are done at the direction or recommendation of a CLIA-waived facility. The facility is required to report those results under their CLIA waiver as a POC result.

    How to report POC results:

    Visit the CDC website for guidance on regulatory requirements for POC testing, using POC tests safely, and information on reporting POC test results.
