The City of New York is looking to immediately hire 1,000 contact tracers, particularly people with experience in the healthcare field. Training will also be made available to those who work across City agencies to complement this work. These contact tracers will interview people who are positive, identify others who may have been exposed, and follow-up with those people in turn to be tested. The COVID-19 Contact Tracing Initiative is now being managed by NYC Health + Hospitals. Please click here for more information. You can now enroll in this free 5-hour course in contact tracing taught by Johns Hopkins beginning on May 20, 2020.
NYC Health and Hospitals is hiring 500 non-clinical staff to help with patient transport, clerical work, and cleaning. No medical background is required and hiring will be expanded to thousands soon. Apply today!
