COVID CONTACT TRACING
C-CTAP Contact Tracing Awareness Program

 

What is COVID-19?

 

COVID-19 Contact Tracing is the process of identifying persons who may have come into contact with a person infected by the Coronavirus and the collection of further information about persons with whom they come into contact. By tracing the contacts of infected individuals, testing them for infection, isolating, or treating the infected individuals, and tracing their contacts, the public health goal is to reduce infections in the general population.

 

Contact tracing is key to slowing the spread of COVID-19 and helping to protect your family and your community. For COVID-19, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), a close contact is anyone who was within six feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes. An infected person can spread COVID-19 starting from 48 hours (or 2 days) before the person had any symptoms or tested

Why is Contact Tracing so Important?

 

Public health officials use COVID-19 contact tracing to manage outbreaks of the disease throughout the community. By in-forming persons of possible infec-tions, they can take proper precau-tions sooner and help others in their lives avoid infection. Exposed per-sons can be given information to guide them in knowing the next steps, which include getting tested and self-isolating to prevent further spread.

COVID-19 is an outbreak of respiratory illness of a new strain of the coro-navirus that has not been previously identified among humans. Symptoms, which may appear 2-14 days after exposure, include:

  • Cough

  • Fever

  • Headache

  • New loss or taste of smell

  • Repeated shaking with chills

  • Sore throat

  • Shortness of breath

  • Muscle pain

Stop its spread by social distancing, wearing a mask, and following CDC and DC COVID-19.

Why is contact tracing important? ​

 

Why do we care?

 

Sadly, data shows that the COVID-19 pandemic is having a greater negative impact on African American communities than other groups. This trend is due to a variety of factors related to underly-ing medical conditions, limited access to health services, and the disproportionately high number of African Americans employed in essential-worker positions. It is for these reasons that the Great-er Washington Urban League implements C-CTAP, through a 2020 DC Hope Community grant from the Mayor’s Office of Community Affairs.

 

You can help by responding if you receive calls from public health workers or contract tracers.
