Contact Tracing Follow-up Information

Due to an increase in cases of COVID-19, testing sites are busy and Calumet County Public Health is now using a prioritized model of contact tracing.

  • Area testing sites are busy and most appointments are booking out a few days. If you have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID-19, and you are now experiencing symptoms, you should assume that you may be COVID-19 positive. Isolate until you are able to be tested AND receive your test result. Area Testing Locations
