Contact tracing within prisons may be a sensitive issue, but it remains a priority due to ongoing links to the patients’ community outside of prison. Approaches taken will vary according to how health care is provided within these settings. Referral to health care providers within prisons is advisable for the initiation of contact tracing and assistance may be required from contact tracers within the wider community.
