    • Ordering Medical Provider
      • For the first two weeks of the testing, DPH will serve as the ordering physician.
      • DPH recommends that schools/districts identify a community-based ordering provider (MD/DO, PA, NP) to provide any neccessary guidance or assistance related to interpreting tests of other medical matters.  This individual might be associated with a local medical practice, health care system associated with a school-based wellness center (if applicable), or a medical provider with an association to the school from the community.
