    Contact tracing certificate possibly income job?

    I ran across this in a news article and started taking the course it was free. Maybe it’s possible to get a job with this? I thought I would provide a link in case anybody was interested.

    I am imagining an Army of Sci people tackling this contact tracing issue.

      Keep us updated about how this works out. In my area they are actively recruiting and training contact tracers, and it appears that it is being done almost exclusively by telephone and on-line communication with the person diagnosed and their contacts.

        Just saw something on line that said something about 'the volunteers will trace.....'; this really sucks if it is not a paid position.

          These are paid positions in my state. I think "volunteering" is for the purpose of out of work or retired health care workers, but would still be for a paid position.

            I see no job listings in my area. I sent an email to the cook county health department. See what they say. Finished the course and got my certification.

              Response from cook county on my email this morning.
              CCDPH will be hiring about 200 to 400 contact tracers starting at the end of May. We do
              not know yet how jobs will be posted. We will be more than doubling the number of
              people that will be working for the agency, and it will take us time to finalize our hiring
              process. Please check back with us in 2-3 weeks for information about where to find jobs.

                Sorry Cook County is behind the trends in this. In my county in CA, hiring is ongoing, and training has been turning out classes of 70 contact tracers 1-2X/week for several weeks now.
