NACCHO COVID-19 Webinar: Contact Tracing Prioritization

Feb 02, 2021 | Beth Hess

NACCHO invites local health department leadership and staff to join the Contact Tracing Prioritization webinar on Thursday, February 11, 3:00-4:00 pm EST.

Contact tracing is a vital part of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic response, as promptly identifying and isolating cases can interrupt disease transmission and reduce spread of SARS CoV-2. Local health departments have been leading this charge and have implemented a variety of strategies to manage ever-growing caseloads, including contracting, working with volunteers, and shortening interview scripts. Despite these efforts, the number of cases is increasingly difficult to handle and many LHDs may need to begin prioritizing case investigations and contact tracing.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently released recommendations to guide the prioritization process and support health departments’ abilities to implement the most impactful public health activities. NACCHO invites you to join us to learn more about the prioritization recommendations and ask questions.

Participants will hear a presentation from Dr. Melanie Taylor with the CDC’s Division of STD Prevention, and will have time to pose questions related to the prioritization recommendations.

In order to join the webinar, please register here (only registered participants will be able to join).
