St. Louis area health departments look to hire contact tracers

St. Louis area health departments are hiring full-time contact tracers.

These individuals will track down people who may have been exposed to the new Coronavirus.

St. Charles county health officials say they are also hiring contact tracers.

The goal is to reach out to everyone who has been in contact with a COVID-19 patient and monitor them daily.

The tracers look for family members, coworkers, and any other individual who may have came in contact with an infected person within 48-hours of the infected person showing symptoms.
