LOINC releases new versions twice a year, usually June and December, although there was talk of changing the release months in the latest spring conference (March 9-12, 2021).

By now we’ve all heard about COVID-19 variants.
Given the need for new laboratory and clinical terminology codes, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, the International Spring LOINC conference of 2021 grew by one more day to address a variety of projects and LOINC advancements.
