TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Health Department launched a new platform for online scheduling for coronavirus testing.

The new online platform allows for assessment, testing and contact tracing, according to a press release. Officials said people can now go online to access the assessment, schedule a coronavirus test and get their results online.

THD officials said to help with contact tracing people will answer several questions to determine their risk factors. Some questions include topics such as, recent travel, health, where they are employed, possible exposure to people who tested positive for COVID-19, etc.

We have been contact tracing positive cases in Tulsa County since the first case back in March. The quicker confirmed cases can begin isolating, the quicker we can slow the spread of the virus and prevent outbreaks.
Dr. Bruce Dart, executive director of THD

Officials said personal information will not be shared with contacts at any time and the contact tracing portion of the new program is optional. However, people who do not respond will be contacted by a contact tracing investigator by phone.
