Contact Tracing Guidelines & COVID Symptoms

27 June 2020


Greenback Family,


Here are guidelines on contact tracing per the Pratt County Health Department.


1. First Degree Contact of a Known Exposure: First degree contact is most likely the cause for community outbreaks.  If you have been informed that you have been in direct or close contact with a COVID-19 confirmed positive (typically in this situation you know the individual personally and have been contacted by the health department as a potentially exposed individual) or you have visited a location considered by the state of Kansas as a "hot spot" travel location, you will be required to self isolate for 14 days.  


2.  Second Degree Contact of a Known Exposure:  Second degree contact is deemed to be less likely to be the source of an outbreak-  If you have been in contact with someone that was in direct contact (first degree) with a confirmed COVID-19 patient you should "self monitor" for 14 days by taking your temperature and monitoring for other symptoms of COVID-19 infection.  


Here are the common symptoms to be monitoring:


  • Fever greater than 100.4
  • Chills
  • Muscle Pain 
  • Headache
  • Sore Throat 
  • Coughing/Shortness of Breath 
  • Loss of taste or smell 
  • Nausea 
  • Diarrhea
