Contact Tracing Planning in Chicago
Ayo Olagoke, PhD in community health sciences student, was interviewed by Patch on the roll-out of new contact tracing plans for the city of Chicago. She noted contact tracing is not a magic button to end the pandemic, and the strategy functions best in concert with other public health guidelines.
Combating this pandemic requires integrated measures, including cohesive leadership, strong communication, physical distancing policies and preventive measures like hygiene and wearing face masks. Contact tracing on its own will not be effective; it requires a joint effort.PhD in Community Health Sciences student|
