Exposed or tested positive? Look out for an official call from COVID-19 contact tracers.
If you or someone you have been in contact with tests positive for COVID-19, public health professionals will call to help you identify the time frame when you may have been contagious and recall your close contacts during that time.
Answer calls from (833) 917-2880, (833) 443-5364, (850) 583-2419 or county health departments to discuss potential exposure to COVID-19 with a contact tracer.
A contact tracer will NEVER:

Save the contact tracer numbers in your contacts so you never miss the call.
