Contact Tracing: What to Expect

What is a close contact? Someone who was within 6 feet of a person with COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes

How will close contacts be informed? The Health department will call to let them know they have been exposed to COVID-19, ask them to stay home and self-quarantine for 14 days, and see if they need any assistance to be able to quarantine (i.e. grocery delivery). If no answer, the health department will leave a voicemail and callback number.

What should close contacts do? Stay at home and self-quarantine for 14 days after the most recent exposure to COVID-19. Monitor themselves for symptoms and notify the health department if symptoms develop. Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become severe.
