County health departments are no longer being required by New York State to conduct contact tracing of people who test positive for coronavirus.

State Health Commissioner Doctor Mary Bassett says this change will allow local agencies to shift resources they were using for contact tracing towards vaccination and testing efforts. The state will be issuing specific guidance Wednesday about isolation and quarantine for infected individuals. That information can be found online.
