COVID-19 Pandemic

INFORMATION ON COVID-19 CASE INVESTIGATION & CONTACT TRACING:

When an Allen County resident tests positive for COVID-19 or is identified as a high-risk contact, our Department and/or the Indiana State Department of Health will reach out. We encourage everyone to respond to a text or e-mail asking you to complete a questionnaire or a voicemail asking you to return a call regarding a COVID-19 test result or contact. Timely case investigations and contact tracing – and the actions requested of contacts – helps minimize the spread of COVID-19 and prevent outbreaks!
