If you test positive, you’ll receive a call from a Contact Tracer who will:

  • Determine if you need more medical attention
  • Offer services to safely separate at home or at a hotel, including meals and medication
  • Create a list of everyone you had contact with (less than 6 feet for more than 10 minutes) since shortly before the onset of symptoms, including family, friends and coworkers so that they can be directed to the help they may need
