The importance of contact tracing

Public health professionals perform case investigations and contact tracing to help slow and prevent the spread of infectious diseases like COVID-19. Contact tracing is one of the best tools we have to slow the spread of COVID-19 in our community and prevent more people from getting sick. 

When Kitsap Public Health is notified of a positive COVID-19 case in our community, they interview the case and learn about the people they interacted closely with during the time they were contagious. "Close contacts" are advised to quarantine (stay home and away from others) for 14 days from their last contact with the case. It is also recommended that close contacts get tested for COVID-19. This process can greatly reduce the potential for COVID-19 being passed from one person to another.

If you get a call from Kitsap Public Health, please respond!
