Contact Tracing: Answer the Call

NC DHHS is working with community partners to encourage people to answer the phone if called about contact tracing for COVID-19. Contact tracing is a valuable tool to keep your family, friends and neighbors healthy and to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Contact tracing calls are not about blaming or shaming others but are focused on helping people identify if they have been exposed, make appropriate decisions about seeking treatment, and prevent further spread of the disease.

Use the links below to learn more about how you can help with contact tracing.

Testing for COVID-19

NC DHHS is recommending anyone that has attended a protest or mass gathering of any type get tested for COVID-19. To locate a testing site near you, click here.

The Carolina Community Tracing Collaborative

The Carolina Community Tracing Collaborative, a new partnership with Community Care of North Carolina and the North Carolina Area Health Education Centers, has been created to expand contact tracing of COVID-19

The new Collaborative will hire and train staff to support local health department’s contact tracing efforts. Recruitment will start immediately; interested applicants should visit the Collaborative’s webpage.

Immediate Public Service Announcement – To run as often as possible beginning today

NEWS UPDATE: The vaccine registration process has changed to allow more convenient access and scheduled appointment times to get the COVD-19 vaccination. We have changed the phone system so that we will be able to handle the volume of calls.

If you are 65 years or older and wish to get the vaccine, please call the Community Vaccine Call Center to schedule an appointment at 828-358-4454.  The call center will be open Monday through Wednesday 8am to 4:30pm to assist you with scheduling.

Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge, Burke County Public Schools, Burke Emergency Management and Burke County Health Department are working in collaboration to get vaccines to our residents in the priority groups 1 and 2 based on the NC DHHS guidelines. This includes essential healthcare workers such as doctors, nurses, dentists, etc., and those in long term care/group homes, etc. This group also includes people who are 65 years old and older.

The community continues to receive very limited weekly vaccine allocations from the NC Department of Health and Human Services, and we are vaccinating our residents as those vaccines are received.

We would like to say again that our commitment is to administer the COVID-19 vaccine as quickly, efficiently, and fairly to all residents who wish to be vaccinated.

Since the first vaccine distribution in late December, Burke County has received 5,675 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine with the following distribution: 3,800 doses received by the hospital, 500 received by the health department and 1,375 received by Broughton and J. Iverson Riddle Developmental Center for their employees.

We have many residents who fall into groups 1 and 2. Burke County has 8,389 residents over 75 and 13,020 residents who are between 65-74.

Our team is preparing a vaccination plan based on weekly state allocations and will implement it as soon as adequate dosage allocation is received. In the meantime, we will be making decisions on a weekly basis as we receive dosage allocation numbers. We will not be able to accept walk-ins. Please make sure that you have an appointment.
