New York State Contact Tracing
As we battle coronavirus together, tracing exposures to COVID-19 is important to stop the spread.
The NYS Contact Tracing Program works with confirmed positive COVID-19 people to determine who they have been in contact with. Trained specialists reach out to those contacts about possible exposure. If you have been identified as a contact you will get a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993).
Because the disease can be transmitted without symptoms, notifying people about a possible exposure is critical to stop the spread.
So, please answer if you get a call from “NYS Contact Tracing” (518-387-9993). It is confidential and private.
A contact tracer will:
NEVER ask for your Social Security number
NEVER ask for any private financial information
NEVER ask for credit card information
NEVER send you a link without proper authentication procedures
Visit coronavirus.health.ny.gov for more information.
Please answer the phone so we can keep New York moving forward and stop the spread of COVID-19.
