Skim the bug to understand where the last sheriff left things and where you should pick up.
Generally, there are two reasons you might see an alert that a previous sheriff already addressed:
The sheriff attempted to fix the alert, but the fix was unsuccessful.
The sheriff was unable to fix the alert, but wanted a future sheriff to follow up with it.
Several common scenarios for each, along with suggested responses, are listed below.
Ping the bug and let them know that the device is still having issues. Usually, Infra>Labs knows the obvious next step. For example, if the previous solution was to restart the device, the next step may be to replace the device.
If neither you nor Infra > Labs knows what to do, escalate the issue on chat.
Escalate by (in increasing order of seriousness):
Disabling the failing benchmark or story if possible (i.e. it's a non-infra failure)
Pinging the tracking bug again.
Pinging the person offline.
Escalate by asking on chat for help (likely from a Speed Ops manager).
