Delaware County Contact Tracing Changes

**Please be advised that Delaware County Public Health is migrating away from individual case investigation and contact tracing. Case interviewing and contact tracing uses public health tools known as isolation and quarantine. These tools can be effective at certain times but when levels of community transmission are high, they become less useful.

You may not get a call from a county or state contact tracer. Instead we are asking the public to FOLLOW THE STEPS BELOW, depending on your particular circumstance.

QUARANTINE

  • You quarantine and stay away from others when you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.  (exposed person)
