How Does Contact Tracing Help in Fighting Against COVID-19?
First let’s learn what contact tracing is.
Think of this as kind of like detective work. Trained people interview others who have been exposed and diagnosed with COVID-19 and figure out who they have recently been in contact with. Then they proceed in letting those people know they may have been exposed to the virus and if necessary, encourage them to quarantine themselves to help in stopping the spread to others. Contact tracing is a disease control measure which has been used in the past for other outbreaks like Ebola virus and SARS.
Contact tracing is a specialized skill and to be done effectively, it requires people with training, supervision, and access to social and medical support. We are an elite contact tracer employer operating nationwide. We are ready to help you!
