Contact your state health department to ensure a contact tracer is real

The Federal Trade Commission warned of fake contact tracers trying to gather personal information from consumers. For reference, a contact tracer will never ask you for money or ask for any personal financial information, nor will they ask about your immigration status or send you links to download. If a supposed contact tracer does any of these things, see if your state health department can tell you if the contact tracer is real or fake.
