This CSV schema must be used in order to transmit COVID laboratory results electronically. The data fields must appear in the designated order using a comma as the delimiter. No other commas or quotations may be used in the file. Please NOTE: Message Control ID field is a required field and MUST be globally unique for every single row of data per sending laboratory CLIA. Messages will fail if this field is not globally unique. The laboratory/LTCF/urgent care is responsible for creating this value. The formatting tab will provide specific examples and guidance for all fields. Additional updates will be made to this schema to accommodate HHS required data fields.
