Contact Tracing Tool (PEG)
SCCHD is now utilizing a contact tracing tool called Patient Education Genius (PEG) for collecting information from individuals who test positive for COVID-19 through a digital survey sent via text or e-mail message.
When SCCHD receives notification of a person who has tested positive for COVID-19, it will issue a text message and/or e-mail to the individual. Individuals will receive an electronic message asking them to fill out a confidential survey. They will also be able to locate other information through the survey link regarding isolation and quarantine and available resources to assist with meeting basic needs. If someone does not fill out or complete the digital survey, they may receive a call from a disease investigator to gather the information.
