If you Test Positive for COVID-19 or are a Close Contact with someone who has COVID-19

Due to the surge in cases and depending on when test results are reported to the local public health authority, cases and close contacts may not hear from local health departments in a timely fashion. If a case is reluctant to name their contacts during the interview process or refuse to answer calls from public health departments. In that case, contact tracers will not be able to notify close contacts of cases.
