New Contact Tracing modules are now available!

The JHU Contact Tracing module will describe the natural history of SARS-CoV-2 , including the infectious period, the presentation of COVID-19, and evidence for how it is transmitted; define an infectious contact and timeline for public health intervention through contact tracing; demonstrate the utility of case investigation and contact tracing, identify common barriers, and possible strategies to overcome them; and present some ethical considerations around contact tracing, isolation and quarantine.

The ASTHO Making Contact: A Training for COVID-19 Contact Tracers module is an introductory online course for entry-level COVID-19 contact tracers, for use by health agencies in rapid training of new contact tracers.
