COVID-19 Symptom Attestation

Whatcom County Health Department Seeking Volunteers for Contact Tracing 

The Whatcom County health department is currently seeking volunteers to be Case Contact Investigators (CCIs) to help trace potential COVID-19 cases. 

CCIs must be able to commit to 20 hours of volunteer time per week for at least six months. Most contact tracing takes place from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on any day of the week. Contact tracing also takes place remotely, so all potential volunteers need is a computer with a reliable internet connection, a private space away from noise and a phone. 

All potential volunteers must complete a Johns Hopkins University online course on contact tracing, available for free through Coursera. The course includes information regarding the spread of COVID-19 and how to investigate, trace and effectively communicate with contacts.  

Upon completion of the material, potential volunteers will take a final evaluation which will be requested before an interview is conducted.
