Lane County struggles with contact tracing amid COVID-19 surge

Like the rest of Oregon, Lane County is seeing a surge in COVID-19 cases as the delta variant continues to sweep through the state. The county is also struggling with contact tracing, not only because of the volume of cases but because many people refuse to answer or return calls from the public health department. We talk with Lane County Public Health Director Jocelyn Warren about the situation.
