Laboratories who are processing and testing samples from Nevada residents are required under severe penalties to report all COVID-19 test results to the Division of Public and Behavioral Health within 24 hours from analysis through an established reporting method. *New*: Laboratories must additionally submit all positive samples of SARS-Co-V-2 with a cycle threshold of (Ct) <30 to the Nevada State Public Health Laboratory for genomic sequencing. *New as of end of day May 11, 2023*: As a result of ending the PHE declaration, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act authority for HHS to require laboratory result reporting will be revoked. In response, the COVID-19 laboratory result reporting requirement within Nevada will change. As of the end of the day on May 11, 2023, negative and inconclusive COVID-19 results will no longer be required to be reported regardless of the type of test performed. All positive COVID-19 results will continue to be reportable with the exception of self-administered at-home tests and serology testing. (See attached TB.)
Employers must notify NVOSHA of all workplace accidents involving an employee fatality or fatalities within 8 hours after learning of the accident. Employers must report to NVOSHA all inpatient hospitalizations of one or more employees, amputations of a part of an employee’s body or an employee’s loss of an eye within 24 hours after learning of the hospitalization, amputation or loss of an eye. Employers must also record on the OSHA 300 Log the recordable injuries and illnesses of all employees on your payroll, whether they are labor, executive, hourly, salary, part-time, seasonal, or migrant workers. You also must record the recordable injuries and illnesses that occur to employees who are not on your payroll if you supervise these employees on a day-to-day basis. If your business is organized as a sole proprietorship or partnership, the owner or partners are not considered employees for recordkeeping purposes. The OSHA 300-A Annual Summary must also be posted each year.
If a medical facility makes a determination that the emergency response employee (ERE) involved has been exposed to an infectious disease, the medical facility shall conduct the test and, in writing, notify the appropriate persons including the designated officer who submitted the request.
