Become a Contact Tracer in Richmond - Sign Up by June 12th



Registration on SpidersEngage is not required, to learn how to participate read below.

This COVID-19 Contact Tracing activity is a practical collaboration between the VCU Center for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Care and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) that allows opportunity for healthy professional learners to safely engage in the City of Richmond and County of Henrico health districts' rapid response to COVID-19 pandemic. All volunteer participation will comply with CDC guidance and not involve face-to-face contact with COVID+ community members. 

At present, this is an in-person activity that takes place at the Henrico County Public Safety Building at 7701 East Parham Road, Henrico, VA 23294. Remote calling may become an option in the summer. Read below for more details. 

For continuity, we ask that each volunteer commits to a minimum of 32 hours (2 shifts per week over 4 weeks). More volunteer time is encouraged and welcomed! Shifts are self-scheduled and first-come first-serve.

***Like COVID-19, contact tracing is rapidly evolving, and details may change. Please be alert for emails from coordinators and admins. Volunteer contact hours will take place in May, June, July, August, 2020. At this time, volunteer hours will be in-person; however, this may change later this summer.**
