Linda Vail does not want to take anybody to court.
But the Ingham County Health Officer has had to send out some warning letters to young people who refuse to cooperate with contact tracers.
“We still run into the occasions where people just flat out refuse to talk to us, refuse to give us information on their contacts,” says Vail. “And honestly, at that point, I just send them a warning letter that basically tells them that they have to. And then we can take them to court if that becomes a problem.”
