Contact Tracing

  • School nurses will lead the contact tracing process with the support of school administrative assistants. Nurses have completed the John Hopkins contact tracing training. Administrative Assistants have also completed contact tracing training. Contact tracing training covers confidentiality and privacy concerns, rapport building, and interviewing to identify cases, contacts, and to provide information to reduce transmission. In addition to current staff members, we have a School Health Aide to support DHS.
