  • Contact tracing—or reaching out to people who have an infectious disease, and those they came in contact with, to help them take care of themselves and protect others—is critical to slowing the spread of COVID-19.
  • Successful contract tracing requires staff with training and access to social and medical support systems that can help patients and contacts.
  • Health departments can use CDC’s COVID-19 Contact Tracing Communication Toolkit to spread the word about the importance of contact tracing and how we can work together to stop COVID-19.
