Dutchess County Needs Contact Tracers
In order for Dutchess County and the Mid-Hudson Region to begin re-opening in phases and importantly to contain COVID-19 and prevent further spread, the County is in vital need of individuals to serve as contact tracers, who can work remotely and telephone residents who may have been exposed to COVID-positive individuals. New York State will not allow our county or region to begin Phase One of reopening until we can prove we have sufficient residents willing to serve in this capacity. if you would be willing to take a 4-hour training to fill this critical gap and help our community take the next step in the re-opening process, please send your name, email address and cell phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org. Signing up to add your name to available volunteers does not prevent you from applying for a paid contact tracing positions with the State.
