Monroe County is implementing the WI DHS’s crisis standards for contact tracing due to the record high cases of COVID-19 in the county.
Officials with the Monroe County Health Department are reporting that they have reached capacity for contact tracing, and are now asking the public to help them in contact tracing. Officials say that they’ll be contacting those who are most at risk for COVID-19 with the highest priority. They’re now asking anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 to help out in contact tracing by contacting anyone who was in close contact with a confirmed case while they had symptoms and also anyone they made contact with 48-hours prior to symptoms showing up. People who are asymptomatic but test positive should contact anyone in close contact 2 days prior to their test date and anyone in close contact 10 days following their test date. Monroe County has a quarantine guide online, you can find it at healthymonroecowi.org/quarantine.
