Duplin County Health Department and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) are launching new initiatives to expand COVID-19 testing and contact tracing across the state and help Duplin County families protect themselves and their neighbors. Testing and tracing are core public health measures and key components of North Carolina’s strategy to responsibly ease restrictions while continuing to slow the spread of the virus.

People in Duplin County can now access new online tools to determine if they should consider being tested for COVID-19 and find a nearby testing place. The tool will also help individuals monitor their symptoms if they have tested positive for or been exposed to COVID-19. In addition, NCDHHS launched a new platform to integrate contact tracing efforts across the state. Duplin County Health Department will transition over the next several weeks to use this specific software program for ongoing contact tracing work.

“There are a number of testing sites located within Duplin County so if you feel that you should be tested, then call your primary care provider or visit the new online tool to identify a local testing site,” said Tracey Simmons-Kornegay, Duplin County Health Director.

“These new COVID-19 testing tools and resources help North Carolinians have the support and information they need to take care of themselves and their loved ones,” said NCDHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen, M.D. “When more people get tested, and we all work alongside the COVID-19 Community Team to do our part with contact tracing, we can protect our loved ones and slow the spread of the virus.”

New Online Tools to Increase Access to Testing
Having more than tripled the amount of testing completed just a month ago, North Carolina continues to ramp up testing. The new online tools are intended to help people know if they may need a test, how to get a test, and monitor their own symptoms if advised to do so by a contact tracer. These tools include:

     Check My Symptoms (www.ncdhhs.gov/symptoms), a public website that allows people to enter their symptoms to determine if they should      consider getting tested for COVID-19. If a test is recommended, they will receive a link to a list of nearby testing sites via email or text.

     Find My Testing Place (www.ncdhhs.gov/TestingPlace), a public website that allows people to enter their county or ZIP code and access a list of nearby testing site locations online.

     COVID-19 Community Team Outreach (CCTO) Tool, a password-protected online software that helps people track their own symptoms if they have been advised to do so by the COVID-19 Community Team. It is also a platform that helps streamline and integrate contact tracing work across the state.

Expanded Contact Tracing Through The COVID-19 Community Team
Through contact tracing, the COVID-19 Community Team reaches out to people who may have recently come into close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 and connects them with the information and support needed to protect themselves and their loved ones.
It is important that people answer the call when the Community Team reaches out. Individuals being
contacted will get an initial text from the number 45394 or email from NC-ARIAS-NoReply@dhhs.nc.gov
with follow-up phone calls from Duplin County Health Department at 910-296-2130 or from NC
OUTREACH (844-628-7223). The Community Team will never ask for anyone’s Social Security Number,
bank or credit card numbers, or any other financial information at any time. Any information shared
during the call is a private health record and is strictly confidential.

Continued Prevention Measures
All North Carolinians should continue practicing their 3 Ws when they leave home: Wear. Wait. Wash.
      Wear a cloth face covering if you will be with other people.
      Wait 6 feet apart. Avoid close contact.
      Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use hand sanitizer.

“If we all do our part, we can protect our family and neighbors and get back to enjoying things
like family gatherings, pastimes, and community events outside of our homes,” said NCDHHS Secretary
Mandy Cohen, M.D. “By working together, we will slow the spread of this virus.”
