You can tell your contacts through email or text.

Both are free and both have the option of being completely anonymous if you choose.

Who should you tell?

If you have COVID-19, we recommend notifying your close contacts and people who you have encountered in any of the following situations:

Anyone who was within 6 feet of you for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period sharing air with you* starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, if you are asymptomatic, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time that you have isolated.

Household contacts and anyone you have provided care to.

Anyone you have had direct physical contact with (hugged, kissed, snuggled, sex, etc.)

Anyone you have shared food with or shared eating or drinking utensils.

We do NOT ask for any of your personal information, nor do we store your contacts’ information.

Please enter your contacts’ phone numbers (up to 10 people)

Enter the phone numbers of the people you would like to contact and the date you spent time with them.

If you want to include a date, enter the date that you last had contact with this person.

or a custom one.

We can all take action to end the pandemic.

If you get diagnosed with COVID-19, help the people with whom you’ve been in close contact. Let them know, and show them where they can get reliable, up-to-date information, including where to get tested.

Please only use this site to notify a contact that you have received a real diagnosis.  Sending a fake message may cause unnecessary distress and take health workers away from their life-saving work.

In some countries, spreading false information can also lead to prosecution.
