Contact tracing is a recognized and effective strategy for “flattening the curve” in a pandemic.  It is painstaking, tedious, investigatively intensive work, requiring excellent communication skills.  Contact tracers must be empathic and compassionate, but they must also be incredibly thorough, perseverant and clinically dispassionate.  The attached infographic provides a summary of how the contact tracing process works.
