A new version of COVID-19 is available for authoring!

A new version of the COVID-19 reporting specification (11.0 Release 20210721) has been released in the RCKMS Tool. This new version of COVID-19 Reporting Specifications has been updated to align with case ascertainment criteria in the CSTE Position Statement 21-ID-01 titled “Update to the standardized surveillance case definition and national notification for 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19)”.

Will I need to re-publish?

Yes. For your convenience, the RCKMS Administrators added version 11.0 into your account and copied over your references for COVID-19.  However, to adopt the new version, you will need to review and publish the new version to Published to Production Status.  Once the new version is published, any previously published versions will automatically change to retired status. 

Please visit the COVID-19 guidance document on the Content Repository or the in release notes in the notification section of RCKMS Authoring Tool for more information on the new version of COVID-19.

Please contact the RCKMS team if you have any questions or need assistance with authoring.  .

Happy Authoring!
