Contact Tracing

En Español

Contact Tracing

Disease investigations, including contact tracing, are part of the process of supporting patients with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection. In contact tracing, public health staff work with a patient to help them recall everyone with whom they have had close contact during the timeframe while they may have been infectious. Public health staff then warn these exposed individuals (contacts) of their potential exposure as rapidly and sensitively as possible. Contacts are provided with education, information, and support to understand their risk, what they should do to separate themselves from others who are not exposed, monitor themselves for illness, and the possibility that they could spread the infection to others even if they themselves do not feel ill.

Reducing the Spread of COVID-19

COVID-19 can be especially dangerous for those at higher risk including people:

  • 65 years old and older
  • With underlying health conditions including heart disease, lung disease, or diabetes
  • Who have weakened immune systems
  • Who are pregnant
