The New York State Department of Health (DOH) announced COVID contact tracing will end this week.
The last day of contact tracing will be Friday, April 29. Counties across the state have begun notifying residents that those who test positive for COVID or come in close contact to someone who has will not receive a call or text message after Friday, according to News10 NBC.
Those who test positive for COVID or come in close contact with an infected person are still expected to follow the state’s isolation and quarantine guidelines. New Yorkers who test positive for COVID via an at-home or lab-confirmed test should report those results through their county’s department of health website.
