A new coronivirus testing requirement is now in effect in Colorado, and it’s going to affect some people.
The state’s Department of Health said Monday that it’s not clear yet whether or not the new requirement will be in effect.
The department said it’s in the process of analyzing the rule and has asked the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to update the federal agency.
Colorado Health and Human Services Secretary Nancy Smith said the new requirements will help people who are currently being tested for COVID-19 get tested.
The new rules, which take effect Jan. 1, are in response to the coronaviruses that have killed more than 1,100 people across the country since late October.
Smith said she expected the new regulations would help people get tested faster and get more accurate results.
Colorado and New Jersey have already implemented the COVID testing requirement, and the rules will apply to all 50 states, as well as Washington, D.C.
The new rules will require those who test positive for COH-19 to receive a blood sample and provide a letter to the county that tests them, which includes a brief description of the COH test, Smith said.
Those who don’t receive a test can choose to get an oral test, which would require a doctor’s note.
If they’re still infected, they can still get tested at the state health department.
The county where they test is still responsible for administering the test.
Smith also said the state has asked other states and the federal government to implement similar requirements, so it’s likely that people in other states will also get tested and get a positive result.
The department also said that it will provide people who test negative for COHB-19 with a referral letter to a county that’s willing to administer the test for them.
Smith and the state are also asking people who have been tested to do additional testing to make sure they are getting all the required tests.
They are also looking at whether people who do not have COHB are allowed to be tested, as they are.
