Important Update from the Georgia Department of Public Health on Prenatal Testing

The Georgia Department of Public Health amended its regulations in August 2022 to add additional testing requirements that align with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendations for prenatal screening. Georgia Rules and Regulations 511-5-4 now mandates that all pregnant women be tested for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, and syphilis during each pregnancy.
