Norwalkers, you worked together to flatten the curve and reduce the number of cases of COVID-19 in our community. Now it’s time to hold the line! 

Contact tracing can help slow the spread of COVID-19, but the Health Department needs everyone's help to make it to work.

"Contact tracing" can sound scary, but it's the term used to describe how the Health Department reaches out to people with COVID-19. We call to check on how they are feeling, see if they need any help staying home as recommended, and ask about people they may have been in contact with when they were contagious (also called their "contacts"). The Health Department then calls the contacts to give them information to stay safe. All information is confidential, and Health Department staff will never ask for social security numbers, personal financial information, passwords, or immigration status.

The Health Department needs you to participate in the contact tracing system for this to work.
