Volunteers will help county control the spread of COVID-19


Last updated 7/31/2020 at 5:15pm

The Blair County Emergency Management Agency is seeking volunteers to serve as members of the Blair County COVID-19 Contact Tracing Team.

Contact tracing, a core disease control measure, is a key strategy for preventing further spread of COVID-19. The purpose of Blair’s team is to support PA Department of Health by notifying individuals of their potential exposure as rapidly and sensitively as possible, and provide information on symptoms and quarantine procedures.

Team volunteers will also provide guidance and support for the exposed individuals to help understand what they can do to care for themselves and reduce the risk to those in their household.

To learn more about becoming a Blair County Contact Tracer, receive a description of duties, and see if you qualify for this important volunteer program, please call The Blair County Department of Emergency Services at (814) 940-5900. You can also e-mail [email protected]
