Both individual lab-confirmed cases and clusters are reportable conditions. Providers must report all positive cases into INEDSS or, if your facility does not have access to INEDSS, via the COVID-19 Online Case Report Form (a confidential online survey powered by IDPH REDCap).
All facilities must submit a weekly COVID-19 Facility Summary Report, capturing all known residents and staff with confirmed COVID-19 infections to date along with any currently symptomatic residents or staff. Additionally, facilities that are conducting in-house antigen testing and do not yet have the ability to report individual-level antigen results (positive, negative, and inconclusive) to IDPH or NHSN must submit a weekly COVID-19 Antigen Test Result Report to CDPH. Both reports are due on Thursdays by 12 p.m. and can be submitted using the CDPH Facility Summary Report Upload Site.
