Contact Tracing Slows the Spread of COVID-19
Contact tracing helps protect you, your family, and your community by:
- Letting people know they may have been exposed to COVID-19 and should monitor their health for signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
- Helping people who may have been exposed to COVID-19 get tested.
- Asking people to self-isolate if they have COVID-19 or self-quarantine if they are a close contact.
During contact tracing, the health department staff will not ask you for:
- Social Security number
- Bank account information
- Salary information
- Credit card numbers
