COVID-19 Result Reporting


COVID-19 is a Mandatory Reportable Condition

North Dakota Administrative Rules 33-06-01 requires the reporting of novel severe acute respiratory illness, which includes COVID-19.

Update (April 4, 2022): Providers are required to report all NAAT tests (positive, negative, inconclusive), and all positive Antigen tests.

  • Positive test results need to be immediately reported to the Division of Disease Control by calling 1-800-472-2180 or by submitting an online report at this website. Positive, negative, and inconclusive tests need to be reported as required by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
  • For labs outside of North Dakota, the national AIMS platform is the preferred method of reporting through HL7 Messages. Please visit for more information and complete this form to register with AIMS to begin reporting ELR.
  • Electronic Reporting through the submission of HL7 Messages is preferred when possible.  Email for more information about setup and validation
  • Batch submission of multiple test results may be completed using a standardized csv format.  Email for more information about setup and validation
  • Long Term Care Facilities reporting individual test reports to NHSN (not aggregated counts) are fulfilling their requirement to report to the state at the same time, and do not need to report to the state independently.
  • Facilities reporting individual test reports using PowerApps (TestReg, MS Dynamics) are fulfilling their requirement to report to the state.
  • Simple Report is an easy Point of Care portal operated by the CDC. Register online here!
