They work with individuals who have been diagnosed with a highly communicable disease and individuals who have been exposed to highly communicable diseases. Contact tracers are trained to communicate respectfully and empathetically. In addition, they are trained to adhere to strict confidentiality and ethical standards and to use technology to collect the required information. The cost of the program is $50.
