COVID-19: Contact Tracing

Along with widespread testing and social distancing, contact tracing is an effective public health tool that’s been used to stop infectious disease outbreaks like COVID-19 for decades. The idea is simple: Quickly find out who’s come into contact with a person who has COVID-19; those contacts then quarantine themselves, breaking the chain of transmission to others.
