COVID-19 Stories from the Field: Notes from a case and contact investigator

Public health professionals perform case investigations and contact tracing to help slow and prevent the spread of COVID-19. When public health learns that someone has tested positive for COVID-19, an interviewer reaches out to talk to that person, usually by phone – this is known as a case investigation.

This blog post from the Washington Department of Health (DOH) gives an inside look on two months working as a COVID-19 case and contact investigator. "I hope we all see the other side of this pandemic with stories to tell of our resilience," writes Sara Eve Sarliker, who is part of the  team at DOH.

Coping with COVID: Grief and loss

When natural disasters happen, it is normal for people to experience loss and grief. Many of us have felt some form of loss as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, like the loss of a loved one, change in health, job loss, or even just the loss of our “normal” life. Any grief and loss we might be feeling is layered on top of all the other stress of a pandemic. It’s ok to not feel ok if you are grieving a loss, especially during a natural disaster like this one.

This episode of the Washington State Department of Health's (DOH) Coping with COVID podcast series talks about how most people experience grief and loss, and provides strategies for families to cope as we make our way through the pandemic.
