Throughout the pandemic health departments across the state have had challenges with contact tracing.
Health officials in Cayuga County say they’ve been experiencing problems over the last few weeks, as they’ve gone through that tried-and-true process.
“A lack of accurate information sharing can be paralyzing in our response to control the spread of the virus and limit the number of new cases from each exposure,” they said.
The rules for quarantine have not changed over the last few months, despite rising cases in the Finger Lakes.
Those who have been vaccinated do not need to quarantine unless they are showing symptoms, according to the state. Those who are unvaccinated, or have not recovered from COVID in the last three months need to quarantine for 10 days after a close exposure.
