CCCC Philadelphia COVID Response Corps
AmeriCorps Contact Tracers will support PDPH Community Health Nurses and Contact Tracing Staff by notifying exposed individuals (contacts are people who have come in close proximity of those who have been diagnosed with SARS-COV-2) of their potential exposure as rapidly and sensitively as possible, helping them quarantine, and facilitate follow-up communications. AmeriCorps members may also help to manage volunteer groups, facilitating regional and local partnership convenings, and liaising with local communities around contact tracing activities. Members will rotate between service modules throughout their year including 1) contact tracing, isolation and quarantine support with PDPH or Public Health Management Corporation 2) Food access support at a food share program 3) service at a local health center. This program is in collaboration with the Philadelphia Department of Public Health and the National Nurse-Led Care Consortium Members will serve 30-35 hours weekly, serving half the hours remotely, and the other half in a direct service capacity.
