I have not read the article yet (over my limit as well), but the course is HERE. Its free, developed by Johns Hopkins, and is being used to train those involved in Bloomberg's tracing efforts in NYC.

Contact tracing is just asking who you've been in contact with.

This says they are asking arrested people about their contacts.. seems like, police work?

Edit: Here you go, you too can train yourself on the mystical art of contact tracing.

COVID19: Imperial College of London launches free online course exploring science behind outbreak

https://www.imperial.ac.uk/news/195455/covid19-imperial-launches-free-online-course/

Imperial College London has launched a free online course explaining the science behind the response to the novel coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak.

Science Matters: Let’s talk about COVID19” features experts from the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis (MRC Centre) and Abdul Latif Jameel Institute for Disease and Emergency Analytics (J-IDEA) who have been working on modelling the epidemic, estimating the epidemic size, transmissibility and severity since the first confirmed cases. The course will provide updates on the current state of the epidemic while also explaining the epidemiological and public health principles that underpin their work, with content being developed in real-time as more information becomes available.

WHAT DOES THE COURSE FOCUS ON?

Imperial’s first “Science Matters” course is delivered through online learning partner Coursera and contains a number of video interviews with leading experts on a variety of key topics including:

  • Basic Reproduction Number (R0) of an infection
  • Case Fatality Rate: Why it varies and why that matters
  • Community participation and the role of social media
  • Economics of an outbreak
  • Developments of a vaccine in real-time epidemics
  • Clinical presentations of COVID19

"Science Matters: Let's talk about COVID19" is available on Coursera.

I'm not sure what you're asking about resources... You mean regarding contact tracing? I looked at every article in May I could find, and there were no links. I see nothing on the IDPH website. Or did you mean something else? : )

I filled out the online interest form for contract tracing, too. Haven't heard a word. I did see that as of yesterday, Washington County has actual contact tracer job openings in the low $20~/hr range, with priority given to bilingual and WA county residents. Here is a link. Also, there is a free contact tracing course on Coursera that was developed by Johns Hopkins, and I completed that -- it seems like it might be a helpful piece of training in seeking employment (and quite honestly, once you get past the basic parts, there is a ton of useful information in there). I'm looking to replace lost gigs this summer and was hoping there was part time remote work in contact tracing, given the Governor's requirements for a certain #/per 100,000 population. The Washington County jobs are full time, though.

Here’s a free online contact tracing course. Most folks working at LPHAs are doing covid-19 contact tracing right now even if they are employed in a different position, so it is a worthwhile skill:

My understanding (from the Johns Hopkins contract tracing course) is by five days, 50% of people show symptoms. Then by 14 days, 95% show symptoms.

Santa Clara is actually a completely different county (they're up in Northern California). Santa Clarita is a city within Los Angeles county.

The protest was on Tuesday the 5th. Bit of a spike in the 5-7 days after.

Congratulations on your offer for a position as a Contact Tracer!

You likely know about the free Johns Hopkins Coursera course:

Well worth it. Informative and gives you a sense of the work, and the importance of it.

Segnalo che su Coursera è stato pubblicato un nuovo corso della Johns Hopkins University (sì, quelli della famosa dashboard) per imparare le basi del Contact Tracing. Il corso è gratis e dovrebbe durare complessivamente circa 5 ore. Magari a qualcuno interessa e potrebbe scapparci qualcosa da mettere nel cv, se il contact tracer dovesse veramente diventare uno dei lavori del futuro, chissà...
