As Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker has announced the details on reopening the state, an important component of the plan will be contact tracing. As a result, Baker has set up a Community Tracing Collaborative. 

Before the state went in that direction, Northampton formed its own collaborative with surrounding towns to assist in reaching out to the contacts of people who tested positive for COVID-19. Carolee McGrath sat down with Meredith O’Leary, the Public Health Director of Northampton to learn more about this project.
