The Federal Register explains that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is creating a new department-wide system of records called the Records Used for Surveillance and Study of Epidemics, Preventable Diseases and Problems, which will replace the existing Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Epidemic Investigation Case Records system. This allows all parts of HHS to report and maintain epidemiological and surveillance records to support the HHS response to the pandemic. Comments on the new system are due by August 19, 2020.
