Event Title: Contact Tracing 101: A Virtual Discussion
Date/TIme: 8/14 Friday 12-1 pm PT
Summary: Across the United States, library workers are now serving as contact tracers where they are trying to find contacts of a confirmed case, in order to test or monitor them for infection. COVID-19 has devastated our health and economic systems, however, we are now seeing new opportunities for library workers to serve as contact tracers. In this free virtual discussion, we invite contact tracers to talk about their work, what they find challenging and what other members of the library community need to know about this work. All are invited to attend! This session will not be recorded
