    • Description:
      Digital contact tracing tools vary in purpose, features, and complexity, but they can add value to traditional contact tracing efforts by: • Improving the efficiency and accuracy of data management and automating tasks; • Reducing the burden of data collection on public health staff by allowing electronic self-reporting • by cases and contacts; • Using location data to identify community contacts unknown to the case to look at possible exposure. Public health staff may have different contact tracing challenges, making a one-size-fits-all solution unlikely. Below are some items to consider when selecting the best tool for contact tracing. cdc.gov/coronavirus CS 316626-A 04/20/2020 digital-contact-tracing.pdf
