Take a Call and Save Lives
Just taking a call can save lives.
We can’t stop the spread of COVID-19 alone. We have to do it together. Social distancing is only part of the solution. The virus that causes COVID-19 spreads easily between people. To break the chain of infection, we’re calling anyone who has been exposed. The process is called contact tracing and it has been used to control diseases for decades. But you have to answer the phone for it to work. 
If you get a call from 866-806-3447, MI COVID HELP or your local health department please answer. Learn more about contact tracing here.
