Lessons from Home and Abroad: Implementing a Contact Tracing Strategy
Wednesday, May 13th | Noon-1 p.m. ET
As a number of states begin to lift stay-at-home orders, questions remain around strategies to curb the continued spread of COVID-19. Public health officials are ramping up efforts to monitor and contain new cases through contact tracing, a disease control method used to identify and notify individuals who have been exposed to the virus. The strategy is a key component of other nations’ efforts to safely ease social distancing measures. During this webinar, panelists will discuss cases studies from abroad and best practices as policymakers look to implement a contact tracing strategy in the United States.
