COVID-19 Reporting

For COVID-19 Long-Term Care Guidance And Support:

312-744-1100

How To Report COVID-19 Cases To CDPH:

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.

We also ask that any potential reinfections (e.g., new positive results >90 days after the original infection) be reported through the optional SARS-CoV-2 Reinfection Case Investigation Form.
