New Jersey Governor Signs Bill Requiring ‘Title 26 Hospitals’ to Report Demographic Data on COVID-19

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has signed a bill requiring hospitals licensed under New Jersey Statutes Title 26 to report demographic data on COVID-19 cases.

To the extent they have not already done so, hospitals affected by the new law should initiate data collection protocols on the demographics of COVID-19 patients by including age, ethnicity, gender, and race. Covered hospitals also must report the number of individuals who attempt to get treatment for COVID-19, who are admitted for treatment for COVID-19, and who attempt to get tested for COVID-19 but are turned away.
