Please be advised:
Some of our contracted COVID Case Investigators are calling from a 415-869-8360 number (which shows as a California number). We are working on a way to have it show as our agency. But until then, if receiving a call from this number, it is NOT a scam. Please feel comfortable to answer as they are calling to help.
Those exposed to someone who has tested positive should self-quarantine, watch for symptoms and take a COVID test within five to seven days, sooner if symptoms show up.
COVID-19 home test kits are covered under most insurance and can be picked up at your local pharmacy.
