    In my observation, contact tracing is not adequate in either Otsego County or NYS. Known contacts have never been contacted by the pertinent Health Departments, who in any case are impossible to reach directly by phone. Bassett has failed to follow up in returning a call from a contact person. Contacts seem to be identified by the County DOH as the persons who should notify the NYS Dept. of Health, as per an e-mail reply to my query from the Otsego Co. DOH. This is not sound epidemiology and should be reviewed.
