[ARCHIVED] City of Seagoville Covid-19 Update

The City has been advised by its attorney that it is unlawful to release to the public information regarding the location, name, or address of individuals who have received positive COVID-19 test results. Specifically, the Privacy Rule set forth in the  Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that individually identifiable health information, including information relating to an individual who is subject of a COVID-19 test results, must be kept confidential.  See, e.g. 42 U.S. C. § 1320.  Further, the City does not fall within the parameters set forth by law in 45 C.F.R. 164.154(a) and (b) for de-identification of this information.  Therefore, by federal law release of the information to the general public by the City is prohibited.
