Due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, our capacity to provide contract tracing services has decreased. If you have come into contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19 you may receive a text from 233-93. This is California Connected, the state’s COVID-19 contract tracing program. When you see this text, it could mean you’ve been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. Help slow the spread of COVID-19 by clicking the survey link in the message and follow the prompts. Learn more in this video.
If you’ve been exposed: Follow the isolation/quarantine instructions until you can be tested and receive test results.
If you need to be tested: Find options on the Get Tested page. Please note: Appointments are required at most places due to high demand.
