Tracking and Tracing

When a member of the university is found to be infected, the DeKalb County Health Department will conduct contact tracing. Contact tracing is used to prevent the spread of infectious disease by identifying people who have an infectious disease and their contacts (people who might have been exposed) and working with them to interrupt disease transmission.
