File Description: 

This document provides guidance for providers on appropriate test utilization for COVID-19 PCR (appropriate COVID-19 repeat testing). All test orders available at DUHS (POC test, rapid test, inpatient test, outpatient test, and IP test) have gone through a rigorous validation process and that all results may be used as part of these repeat testing strategies. NOTE: References to pre-operative/pre-procedural testing have been removed, as COVID testing is no longer required to be performed prior to high-risk procedures or surgeries. Updated 12.07.21
