Lab Advisory

Provides important information for a specific incident or situation; contains recommendations or actionable items to be performed by public health officials, laboratory professionals, and/or clinicians; may not require immediate action.

Lab Update

Provides updated information regarding an incident or situation, or partner news; unlikely to require immediate action.

Lab Resource
