Using the direct experience of a first responder fighting COVID-19, a new four-hour class offered by Community Colleges of Spokane aims to help businesses and organizations develop internal contact tracing within their organization to minimize the effect of COVID-19. Participants of this class will learn the process of developing and maintaining internal contract tracing, how it protects their internal and external customers, and supports regional contract tracing work of the epidemiologists at the Spokane Regional Health District (SRHD).
The class will be live online via Zoom from 8 a.m. to noon on Friday, Oct. 9. Cost is $95 and the registration deadline is Wednesday, Oct. 7. Register on the Community Colleges of Spokane website at: ccs.spokane.edu/corporate-continuing-education/classes.
