Do Your Part: Answer the Text! 

Have you recently received a text from 233-93? It is from California Connected, our state’s COVID-19 contract tracing program.  

When you see this text, it could mean you’ve been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. When you click the survey link in the message and follow the prompt, this helps slow the spread of COVID-19 in the community. Answering the text is a tool to prevent potential outbreaks which provides support to hospitals and our local healthcare system.  

What is Contact Tracing?  

If someone tests positive for COVID-19, a healthcare worker may communicate with this individual to gather a list of close contacts who are at a high risk of exposure. In turn, each close contact will be notified of their exposure then they will be informed of further steps to follow such as testing, quarantine, or potential medical care. This process is highly effective at tracking the spread of COVID-19 and mitigating the rate of infection in the community.

Get the Most Out of Your Mask 

My mask protects you. Your mask protects me. 

Masking remains an important tool in our toolkit for the prevention of coronavirus. Current guidance says to wear a well-fitting mask to help prevent COVID-19 and the highly transmissible Omicron variant. But what makes a mask “well-fitting”? The CDC makes the following recommendations to get the most out of your mask: 

  • Have two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric 
  • Completely cover your nose and mouth 
  • Fit snugly against the sides of your face and don’t have gaps 
  • Have a nose wire to prevent air from leaking out the top of the mask (Hint, if your mask is fogging up your glasses, the seal of your mask is not snug.) 
  • Masks labeled as “surgical” N95s should be prioritized for health care workers 

How can you improve the fit of a disposable use mask? Watch the minute-long CDC video below to find out how to get a better fit, and better protection against COVID-19, out of your mask.
