Contact tracers are instrumental in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 and
other viruses. Their primary responsibility is to work with patients who’ve had a virus and find out who they came into contact with while they were contagious. Illinois is planning to invest almost $80 million in building a statewide contact tracing program.
The goal is to have at least 30 tracers per 100,000 residents.
Contact Tracers earn between $15 and $27 an hour.
Upon completion of the program, you will be able to conduct contact tracing according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and recommendations.
