PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There are lots of robocalls and scams these days, but if you get a call that starts with 215-218-XXXX answer it. That means a COVID-19 contact tracer is trying to get in touch with you.

Philadelphia Health Commissioner Dr. Thomas Farley said Thursday if you get COVID-19 and don’t want to have to inform people yourself, the contact tracers will do it for you confidentially.
