Contact tracing is the tracking down of infected people, and then finding everyone who has been near them and encouraging them to self-isolate at home.
Contact tracing has been used for decades to control the spread of infectious diseases. The basic idea is simple: track down infected people, then find everyone who has been near them and encourage those people to stay home until it is clear they are not sick.
Contact tracing is a full time commitment given the training requirement and access to various necessary systems. In order to work effectively, we will be scheduling people 7 days a week between 8am-8pm, but not to exceed 35 hours per week.
