OPINION

"A social work contact tracer is already trained to assess mental health needs and understand policies and how to tap resources for unemployment or food security. We are trained to look at problems holistically, and skilled at working face-to-face in people’s homes or on the phone. Our Code of Ethics drives us to be compassionate and comforting in carrying out our mission to serve, and to act with integrity. As has been well-documented, racial and ethnic minority communities have been hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. 


Social workers will help bridge the gaps between a healthcare system that often has failed people and the need to quell this pandemic.

The social work profession is rooted in contact tracing and public health. In early 20th-century settlement houses, social workers identified a communal water source as the starting point of a disease epidemic. After World War II, a cadre of social workers were recruited to address the needs of returning veterans and their families. On April 30, 2020, there were 305,024 cases and 23,317 coronavirus-related deaths in New York State. Though Governor Cuomo reported these numbers are declining, he also called for continued vigilance as the state focuses on reopening. Sensitive contact tracing is key to the success of this plan."

Benjamin R. Sher, MA, LMSW, is the President, National Association of Social Workers (NASW), New York City Chapter Board of Directors. Jennifer Zelnick, MSW, ScD, is a Professor & Social Welfare Policy Chair, Touro College Graduate School of Social Work. Erica Sandoval, LMSW is the President-Elect, NASW-NYC Chapter Board of Directors

 

NEW YORK STATE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH


New York State plans to hire a team of 6,400 to 17,000 staff statewide, depending on the projected number of COVID-19 cases, to support the NYS Department of Health (NYSDOH) and Local Health Departments (LHDs) to perform contact tracing in communities across NYS.


To meet the scale and scope of this nation-leading program, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Vital Strategies: Resolve to Save Lives and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will support building the team through a three-step process: recruitment, interviewing and training.

The aim of this initiative will be to call every person diagnosed with COVID-19, establish all contacts of this person, and proceed to call and maintain ongoing communication with every contact. In addition, the team will support the isolation and quarantine of individuals, as appropriate in cooperation with the Local Health Department. This includes virtual needs checks and referrals to community resources as needed.


This contact tracing initiative is in tandem with statewide-wide efforts to increase testing, improve communication and knowledge of effective strategies to reduce transmission, and implementation of isolation and quarantine. This will fortify efforts to control the pandemic in NYS.
 
Our first goal is to help the state identify and recruit a robust Contact Tracing team to be a part of this ambitious and urgent effort.


To be considered, candidates must be a New York State resident 18 years of age or older; meet the position description requirement; go through an interview process, and complete a training and certification program.
 
New York State is looking to immediately fill the following roles:


     1. Contact Tracers: reach out to the contacts of anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 to assess symptoms, ensure compliance with quarantine, and determine social support needs.

     2. Team Supervisors:  lead a team of 20 Contact Tracers, and one Community Support Specialist who are working remotely using digital tools.

     3. Community Support Specialists: work with the team and the local health departments to address the physical/mental health, and social/human service needs of those contacted, especially those who are under isolation or quarantine.
 
Click here if you or someone you know in New York State is interested in applying to be a part of the Contact Tracing team.

This is a moment of crisis and New York needs our help as soon as possible. 
 
Thank you!
 
P.S. Please share this with anyone in NYS in your networks who you think might be interested in applying and post to your social media accounts!
