According to ODH, "The Contact Tracers are 'disease detectives' who will gather critical information from Ohio residents diagnosed with COVID-19 by identifying their contacts and calling every contact who lives in Ohio."
The job listing says the project duration is 12 to 18 months, it's part-time, preferred qualifications are "experience in public health, medical or related field" and "interviewing technique skills," pay rate is $18.59 an hour and the work is remote.
If you've got time on your hands, like talking on the phone and want to help track down people who have possibly been exposed to COVID-19 — like you're a health care Sherlock Holmes — check out the listing.
Because, as the ODH says, "Contact tracing involves identifying people who are likely to get sick because of being in contact with those who have tested positive. Contact tracing is an important part of us going forward in reopening."
