    ​​Hello Group,

    Is anyone willing to share how they are handing Law Enforcement, EMS and disbatch in the wake of the OCR notice below?  https://www.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/covid-19-hipaa-and-first-responders-508.pdf

    I'm in Oregon and have yet to see our state release similar guidance (specifically about releasing a list of COVID positive patients to EMS disbatch).

    Thank you in advance for your input
