We'd like to make Troop 98 Scouts and families become very aware of contact tracing and how it works. Perhaps eligible Scouts and their family members might even be able to be hired as official contact tracers when those opportunities arise. At a minimum, we can become more informed about this very important piece of the COVID-19 puzzle as we attempt a "return to normalcy". The image below shows how important contact tracing can be in helping stop the spread of COVID-19 (click on the image to zoom in).
The COVID-19 crisis has created an unprecedented need for contact tracing across the country, requiring thousands of people to learn key skills quickly. The job qualifications for contact tracing positions differ throughout the country and the world, with some new positions open to individuals with a high school diploma or equivalent.
