Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, San Bernardino County COVID-19 Contact Tracing Program (SBC CCTP) has embodied a dynamic, adaptable workforce. Beyond adapting to evolving CDPH guidance on masking, isolation, and quarantine, CCTP’s workforce adapted to meet evolving needs throughout the SBC COVID-19 response effort. Contact tracing staff were strategically leveraged to support canvassing efforts in vulnerable communities, vaccine/testing/therapeutics distribution logistics, operation of county vaccine and testing sites, health education events, contact community partners about new initiatives, and enroll SBC residents into Medicaid.
