DOH Health Advisory: Specimen Collection Training for Unlicensed Individuals

Updated: May 19

A new DOH Health Advisory links to the DOH Training for Sample Collection Procedure for SARS-CoV-2 Testing, which is now available on the Health Commerce System (HCS). Specimen collection by unlicensed individuals should occur only under the direction of a licensed health care professional who is authorized to order a COVID-19 test. The licensed health care professional is responsible for ensuring delivery of the DOH Training for Sample Collection Procedure for SARS-CoV-2 Testing—as approved by the New York State Commissioner of Health—and providing general supervision to the unlicensed individuals conducting specimen collection.
