According to two people familiar with New Jersey contact tracing efforts, worked on the program.
“List names and email addresses. You need a city and a state for strong contact, ”an official said. “We basically said a lot – we need and need more information.”
Officials said the state contacted the White House early Friday morning after learning of the president’s confirmation, and a “blanket statement” said “the White House medical unit is tracing all contact.”
