Contact Tracing and Investigation Information
An individual identified as having a laboratory confirmed case of COVID-19 will receive a phone call from one of our public health staff. During the interview, the public health staff will ask where they spend their time and who they have had close contact with. Those identified will be contacted by phone for symptomatic monitoring, and suggested MDH guidelines for self-quarantine and isolation.
As these case and contact investigations begin it is especially important that those contacted answer/accept phone calls or return messages left by the public health staff. As our public health staff increases their capacity to conduct all case investigations in Kanabec County, please note that MDH will also conduct some of the investigations.
