Trusted tools in preventing disease: case investigations and contact tracing

Case investigations and contact tracing are trusted public health tools for preventing the spread of disease. This week, Gov. Jay Inslee described a statewide plan to use these tools so that more businesses can open and more people can be active in public while public health works to slow and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Here in Kitsap County, the Kitsap Public Health District has 38 staff members trained to perform case and contact investigations. It also has contingency plans for additional contact-tracers in the event that existing resources aren’t sufficient.

Read the recent blog post from the Washington Department of Health to learn the facts about these trusted public health tools.
