Welcome to

CovidLINK is more than Maryland’s contact tracing initiative. It’s a way we can all keep each other safe.

Contact tracing is the process of identifying people who may have come into contact with an individual who has an infectious disease like COVID-19. Through contact tracing, we can better understand disease transmission, prevent new infections, and help slow the spread of COVID-19.

covidLINK Story

Claudia and her husband Ben didn’t know if they would survive their COVID-19 illness. So they sat down with their 18-year-old daughter and gave her instructions on how to take care of the family—just in case.

Now fully recovered, they take every opportunity to promote the virtues of contact tracing and urge everyone do their own part to help keep the coronavirus in check.
