NACCHO, ASTHO Roll Out Contact Tracing Workforce Estimator Tool

This week, the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO), in partnership with the George Washington University, launched a contact tracing estimator tool to assist local and state health departments in determining workforce needs amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The tool allows users to input various criteria and assumptions to determine the number of staff needed to effectively identify and trace individuals who have been in contact with new cases of COVID-19 to slow the transmission of the virus.

The tool is available here.
