Dept. of Public Health Releases New Video: “How Contact Tracing Works in Georgia”

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) launched the Healthy Georgia Collaborative campaign, which is the agency’s expanded contact tracing program to combat the spread of COVID-19 across the state. Contact tracing is an important public health tool used to monitor the spread of infection and identify outbreaks of COVID-19 before they become widespread community transmission.

As part of this campaign DPH released a new video, “How Contact Tracing Works in Georgia,” explaining the state’s COVID-19 contact tracing process and asking residents to ‘answer the call’ if DPH reaches out. State employees are encouraged to watch the video and share the link with co-workers, family members, friends and neighbors in communities throughout the state in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus.

“For contact tracing to be successful, education is critical,” says DPH Commissioner Kathleen E. Toomey, M.D., M.P.H. “We need residents to understand what contact tracing is, why it’s important, and how they can participate in helping Georgia stop the spread of COVID-19.”
