For Immediate Release
December 11, 2020
Hyde County Health Department is currently using a third party to perform contact tracing efforts for individuals exposed to positive laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases. Because of this, if you are a close contact to a case, it is highly likely you may receive a phone call from an unusual phone number with an individual identifying themselves as a representative of the Hyde County Health Department. THIS IS LEGITIMATE. Please accept the call and answer the questions that are asked of you. These efforts are to reduce the spread of COVID-19, as the individual will review with you quarantine and testing information.
In the near future, we may do the same thing with case investigations. Again, we ask that you cooperate with the inquirer on the phone line. We thank you for your cooperation and efforts to slow the spread of this virus.
As always, the Hyde County Health Department remains available to the public to answer questions and provide education. We can be reached at 926-4399 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. For 24/7 on-call services, dial 1-866-462-3821, the Coronavirus Hotline.
