Tillamook County Public Health is responsible for conducting case investigations for all persons who test positive for COVID-19 and are residents of our county. Please remember the following:
1. Those who are identified as close contacts can expect to be contacted by a contact tracer within 24 hours of the investigation.
2. Contacts will receive information regarding self-quarantine and support from a contact tracer during this time.
3. Contacts who do not have symptoms will not be tested for COVID-19 per Oregon Health Authority (OHA) guidance.
Contact your provider or call our COVID-19 line (503-842-3940) to discuss your symptoms to determine whether you need a medical visit and need to be tested.
The best thing we can do to keep our community safe and healthy is follow the three “W”s from Governor Kate Brown’s office:
– Wearing a face covering
– Watching your distance
– Wash, wash, wash, your hands
