Contact tracers—whether part of a paid workforce or a community of volunteers—use clear protocols to notify, interview and advise close contacts to patients with confirmed or probable highly infectious disease.
Foothill College has launched a free Contact Tracing and Case Investigation course to help meet the demand for trained contact tracers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With the trajectory of COVID-19 both in California and nationally, we want to ensure ongoing support for trained contact tracers and recruitment of new students into this program.
About our Contact Tracing Corps
The CTC, headed by instructor Dr. Rebecca Ryan, is a service leadership group of dedicated volunteers who will train and actively work 1–2 days per week as contact tracers, earning paid stipends.
