Test, Trace, and Space: Investing in a Health Workforce to Prevent Pandemic Spread


As states and communities continue to re-open, the term “contact tracing” – like that of “flatten the curve” – has suddenly become a part of our regular national dialogue. In order to realize the vision of contact tracing and stem the tide of community spread of COVID-19 one critical component is ensuring an adequate and well-trained workforce.

This webinar discusses the work being done in Congress through the Health Force and Resilience Force Act of 2020, lessons learned from STD contact tracing efforts, and the ready workforce of Community Health Workers.

  • Frederick Isasi, Executive Director, Families USA
