“To successfully reopen and continue to meet statewide reopening metrics, it is important for Tulare County residents to follow recommendations set forth by our County Health Officer and Public Health Branch,” she continued. “We urge everyone to abide by the safety precautions in protecting our most vulnerable populations and those at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19.

Contact Tracing is Vital
More importantly, anyone who is contacted by Public Health and contact tracers needs to follow all recommendations, including isolation if necessary. Contact tracing is vital to slowing the spread of COVID-19, and it is imperative for everyone to cooperate with contact tracers and provide information about individuals with whom you may have come into contact. The contact-tracing process enables the County Public Health Branch to track down individuals who may have been exposed and prevent any further spread of the coronavirus. Contact tracers will never ask individuals for their personal information, such as bank accounts, credit card numbers, or social security numbers. Reopening guidance for hotels
