The Alameda County Public Health Department (ACPHD) reminds the Alameda Community to help stop the spread of COVID-19 by responding to our contact tracers’ phone calls. Contact tracing is a public health tool that has been used to contain pandemics, and integral to slowing the spread of COVID-19. Contact tracing allows trained health workers to talk to someone who has tested positive, and confidentially notify anyone who may have been exposed and discuss the appropriate next steps (e.g. identifying symptoms, getting tested, self-quarantine, or accessing medical care). ACPHD’s official contact tracers will never ask for your social security number or immigration status. In this bulletin, you can read more about contact tracing, and find resources for individual community members and Eden Area small businesses who have been affected by COVID-19.
