The term contact tracing is new to many people due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but to public health professionals, it’s old news. State and local public health professionals trained in contact tracing understand the basics of disease transmission, including incubation and infectious periods, symptoms and prevention. According to several national guidelines around states “reopening,” adequate testing and contact tracing are key components to states’ ability to manage COVID-19 cases going forward. Join NCSL for this webinar to explore state efforts to coordinate and expand testing and contact tracing.
