Understand Contact Tracing

Contact tracing is an essential public health function during infectious disease epidemics that aims to identify persons who have come into close contact with an infected individual. Close contacts are quarantined and tested with the goal of reducing the chain of transmission of infections in a population.

Emory University has implemented a case investigation and contact tracing program to augment the work of the local and state public health departments. By returning to the on-campus community, students, faculty, and staff are agreeing to cooperate with case investigators and tracers. Students will be tested if they are determined to have been in close contact with a COVID-19-positive individual.
