Community Based-Testing Sites (CBTS) for COVID-19

Are you a covered entity, or a business associate?

Are you operating a COVID-19 testing site, during this COVID-19 nationwide public health emergency?

Are you participating in good faith? Are you all “Yes” above? If so, no penalties will be imposed for violations of the HIPAA Rules, against you (covered entities and business associates) in that regard.

Community Based-Testing Sites (CBTS) include mobile, drive-through, or walk-up sites that only collect COVID-19 specimen from the public or provide testing services.
