Important information from the City and County of Denver Government about contact tracing and avoiding potential scams!
Heads up #Denver: as of 5/13 the Department of Public Health and Environment has begun contact tracing. A City of Denver employee may reach out to notify those who have possibly been exposed to a confirmed case of #COVID-19 to ask about your symptoms and check on you. Please know, we will NEVER ask you for your SSN or credit card info. If a caller requests that information, hang up immediately.
During a contact tracing call we will verify your name and DOB and ask about symptoms. You may be asked to provide your zip code/county and email to receive additional information, but those are optional. Your personal information will not be shared/sold. It is our responsibility to protect the health & privacy of Denverites.
Contact tracing, coupled with rigorous testing, can counteract a potential second wave and prevent cases from spiking again.
