NNCC AmeriCorps Contact Tracing
 
 
 
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.
