INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — ISDH is warning about fake calls from people claiming to be contact tracing.

Those callers are asking questions that are not part of the information ISDH gathers.

Actual contact tracers will only ask questions about possible symptoms you are experiencing and who you might have been in contact with.

You might also receive a text message that will provide the following number for you to call: 833-670-0067. If you receive a message with a different number, you should not call it.

Anyone concerned with a potentially fake call from someone claiming to be a contact tracer should contact the ISDH.

Below is an example of what a real text message from ISDH will look like:
