Wilton's First Selectwoman is answering questions about the confidentiality of contact tracing. When speaking with the identified contacts, the tracers do not disclose the identity of the patient. Lynne Vanderslice says patients should not have to disclose their health status while wanting to help control the spread. Contact tracers allow patients to help confidentially. She says Wilton specifically hired nurses as contact tracers for their knowledge of the the HIPAA law, which protects the confidentially of health information.
