Audrain County Health Department Announces Modifications to COVID-19 Contact Tracing Strategy

The Audrain County Health Department is announcing modifications on how they will conduct contact tracing for new COVID-19 cases in Audrain County.

In an email sent out today (Friday) the health department is asking those that test positive for COVID-19 take immediate action to isolate and contact individuals that they may have been in close contact with.

The department says that an increase in cases has created significant workload that requires new contact tracing measures in order to eliminate wait time in communicating with close contacts and stop people from unknowingly spreading the virus.

The new process will start on Wednesday, December 16th.
