Ad Hoc Report Templates for COVID-19 Reporting

A new series of Ad Hoc Report Writer templates has been developed to provide a consistent, efficient and accurate set of reports to aid in COVID-19 reporting.

The COVID-19 templates provide:

  • An operational summary view of positive findings including turnaround times
