Contact tracing is a vital tool in the fight against COVID-19 in our communities. Find more information below.
Gallatin City-County Health Department is actively working with state and local partners to update our quarantine guidelines as it applies to our unique situation. As guidelines change for Gallatin County we will communicate to the community. As of 12/4/20 the quarantine period in Gallatin County is 10 days from last exposure for close contacts who do NOT develop COVID-19 symptoms. Thank you for your patience and partnership in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our county.
The Gallatin City-County Health Department uses an innovative tool called Sara Alert to support our monitoring and reporting of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Sara Alert is a standards-based, open source tool that allows us to efficiently monitor individuals at risk for COVID-19, enabling real-time insights and increased reporting capability to support containment of the virus. The tool allows people, who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or potentially exposed to the virus, to report daily symptoms through web, text, email, and robocall. This allows us to apply our time more efficiently to follow-up and coordinate care where most needed.
