Contact Tracing Training
Contact tracing, a core disease control measure employed by local and state health department personnel for decades, is a key strategy for preventing further spread of COVID-19. There is an immediate demand for contact tracing to continue to flatten the COVID-19 curve. Communities must scale up, train a large contact tracer workforce, and work collaboratively across public and private agencies to stop the transmission of COVID-19. This course covers the fundamentals of COVID-19 and expectations regarding the role of contact tracing.
Content will be delivered asynchronously, meaning the content will be available throughout the week(s) and you can work at your own pace, with deadlines infused throughout.
