CONTACT TRACING 101: COURSE BEING OFFERED BY JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY
This week, the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health launched a free online course on contact tracing for amateur sleuths hired to stop the virus in its tracks. It's required for the thousands of contact tracers that New York is hiring, but it's available to anyone who's interested.
Contact tracing is a kind of disease detective work. Tracers track down anyone who might've been infected by a person who was recently diagnosed with coronavirus so those contacts can quarantine themselves and prevent further spread.
