  • Community Tracing Collaborative (CTC)
    The COVID-19 Community Tracing Collaborative (CTC) has been created by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and Partners In Health.

    • The program focuses on reaching out to the contacts of confirmed positive COVID-19 patients to help others who have been potentially exposed to the virus.

    • When the MA COVID Team calls, you can do your part by answering the phone and providing helpful information that will help flatten and reduce the curve in Massachusetts.
