Due to the amount of new cases and home test results being reported to the Allegany County Department of Health (ACDOH) daily, the ACDOH has implemented an electronic COVID-19 Positive Home Test Reporting Form. The form is to be filled out and submitted by the positive case unless the case is a minor. If the case is a minor, a parent or guardian may submit a form on their behalf. Each positive requires a new form. Once submitted, a member of our team will get back to you for tracing purposes within 3 days. Please click on the following link to access the form:
