About two weeks after she tested positive for COVID-19, Jessica Young of Huber Heights got a call from Public Health Dayton and Montgomery County with a specific request. The stranger on the other end of the phone asked her to write down every person she had interacted with for the last two months.

“Anybody I had shaken hands with, sneezed around, sat next to more than 10 to 15 minutes,” she said. “Anybody I had deep conversations with that would keep me close to them for a long period of time.”
