Contact Tracing Information

Contact Tracing information for COVID-19

Case investigation and contact tracing are important tools used to slow the spread of COVID-19 and help protect you, your family, and your community.

  • While still a vital tool in slowing the spread of COVID-19, Nebraska's contact tracing and case investigation strategy is changing due to more infectious variants like the Delta and Omicron variants.
  • Case investigators and contact tracers in some jurisdictions are focused on large clusters instead of individual cases. If you test positive for COVID-19 or are in close contact with someone who tested positive, you may not receive a live phone call from a contact tracer.
  • Instead, you may┬áreceive a text message from an automated text messaging service asking you to take a survey, it is important for you to respond and take the survey.
