THE ROAD BACK: EXPANDING TESTING CAPACITY AND CONTACT TRACING IN NJ
Two of the most critical steps to getting New Jersey on the road to recovery is our State's expanded testing program for COVID-19 and contact tracing strategy. Together, they are the key to saving lives and stopping the spread of this deadly disease.
Our first responders and health care workers are saving lives every day – and so can you. Your family, your friends, your neighbors – their lives are literally in your hands. So here's how you can do your part:
Get Tested – Testing is now available to all New Jerseyans. You could have COVID-19 and not even know it. Protect yourself and save the lives of your loved ones and neighbors by getting tested – especially if you have symptoms, have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, are an essential worker, or were recently in a large crowd where social distancing was hard to maintain.
Answer The Phone When A Contact Tracer Calls – You've been called because you tested positive for COVID-19 or may have come into close contact with someone who has. Contact tracers are calling with life-saving information that will keep you, your loved ones, and your community healthy.
For more information about how contact tracing works, how the state is expanding testing, steps they're taking to protect your privacy, and what you can do to help stop the spread of COVID-19, please visit the New Jersey COVID-19 Information Hub here.
We can fight this pandemic, #FortLee. We can find the virus and stop its spread with widespread testing and contact tracing. We do it #ForEachOtherForUsAll.
