DOH CLIA Waiver
All licensed EMS agencies in Washington state are covered under a single CLIA waiver that is maintained by the EMS section of the Washington State Department of Health. This means that EMS agencies in Washington can provide POC tests using human specimens as long as the tests are CLIA-waived. All of the COVID-19 rapid antigen tests provided by WA COVID-19 are CLIA-waived under their emergency use authorizations (EUAs). EUAs for COVID-19 antigen tests can be found on the FDA website for In Vitro Diagnostics EUAs.
