CDPHE asks Coloradans to cooperate with local public health agencies, as the leads of contact tracing

Statewide, (Sept. 8, 2021): As the delta variant spreads, contact tracing continues to be critical. The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment asks Coloradans to participate in contact tracing with local public health agencies, which may call or email you after you test positive for the virus or are exposed to someone while they are infectious. Local public health agencies play a central role in contact tracing, getting information for people who have tested positive for the virus, and tracing and informing others who may have been exposed.
