Tracing Health Pacific Northwest: Washington County, Oregon; Clark County, Washington; Skamania County, Washington; Spokane County, Washington

In partnership with the Oregon Public Health Institute, PHI's Tracing Health is working to stem COVID-19 transmission in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. The model involves small teams of contact tracers each working with a Resource Coordinator who can provide people in isolation or quarantine with connections to food banks, mental health services, visiting nurses, and other community programs. The model is designed to be quickly scalable and able to pivot to hotspots. In addition to contact tracing, data analysts, disease surveillance and outbreak investigations, the initiative connects individuals to the resources they need. Emily Henke, the Executive Director of the Oregon Public Health Institute, serves as Co-Program Director to the Pacific Northwest initiative.
