Contact Tracer Calls

Contact tracers are calling with life-saving information that will keep you, your loved ones, and your community safe and healthy. When a contact tracer calls, it’s because you tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has – so it’s critical that you answer the phone.
