"As with any notifiable condition, to include COVID-19, once a positive result is reported to the health department, the department contacts the individual to start a contact investigation. The investigation includes the question of who the positive case was in contact with prior to the lab results being received. Once all contacts are determined, to include phone numbers, the health department begins calling all identified contacts. The health department’s goal is to contact everyone on the patient’s contact list as soon as possible.
As in all medical situations, the person’s affected by this virus have protections under HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). Therefore, to remain compliant with those provisions, we will only be releasing the information necessary to protect our public."
