MMWR Notes from the Field: COVID-19 Case Investigation and Contact Tracing Program – Spirit Lake Tribe

In response to a rapid increase in new COVID-19 cases on the Spirit Lake Reservation, CDC assisted the Spirit Lake Tribe in building a tribally managed COVID-19 case investigation and contact tracing program. An MMWR report finds that the program, which was managed by the Tribe, successfully reached affected tribal members to support effective isolation, quarantine, and symptom monitoring, and helped with rapidly identifying cases and notifying contacts. This program might help inform similar public health programs in other tribes.Public Health Professionals GatewayRead More
