  • Description:
    Contact tracing is a key strategy to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. Contact tracing in the United States requires states, tribes, localities, and territories to recruit, hire, and train adequate levels of case investigators and contact tracers. Successful case investigation and contact tracing for COVID-19 depends on a robust and well-trained public health workforce, with staff who have excellent and tactful interpersonal skills, cultural sensitivity, and language and interviewing skills that help them to build and maintain trust with clients and contacts. The CDC COVID-19 Response and the CDC Division of STD Prevention are supporting two cooperative agreements to train the COVID-19 contact tracing workforce. The newly funded National Network Disease Intervention Training Centers (NNDITC) and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) in partnership with the National Coalition of STD Directors (NCSD) are leading a nationwide, coordinated training effort to build a well-trained public health COVID-19 contact tracing workforce, including case investigators, contact tracers, and contact tracing supervisors. cdc.gov/coronavirus CS 317984-A 07/13/2020 FS-Training-Contact-Tracing-Workforce.pdf
