Wisconsin Health Department To Begin Contact Tracing Text Program Again

(Wisconsin) Wisconsin’s public health officials are reaching out again to people who have been close to someone who’s tested positive for the coronavirus. The Department of Health Services is re-launching its contact tracing text program. Acting health secretary Karen Timberlake says people who’ve tested positive will get a call from a contact tracer, while people who have been in close contact will get a text. The message will start with ‘Health Alert.’ The state health department is asking people not to ignore the messages.
