Tracing the Coronavirus
Although the struggle to contain the coronavirus in Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and surrounding areas continues, a number of local medical professionals are working hard to do their part health crisis. According to recent announcements from California’s governor, Gavin Newsom, a critical element of reopening California safely will be the use of contract tracers. Based on current policies, cities will be required to utilize 15 contract tracers for every 100,000 residents. This powerful resource will help ensure that new infections can quickly be traced and contained as rapidly as possible.
Identifying Logistical Hurdles
Unfortunately, this particular strategy brings its own logistical programs. According to the most recent data collected in California, over 40% of the state’s counties would have difficulty meeting this quota of trained tracers. With that in mind, the state is investing heavily in training individuals to be able complete this critical task as safely and quickly as possible.
While it may seem unconventional to rapidly deploy a new team of tracers to help contain the spread of coronavirus, the unprecedented nature of the outbreaks and our nation’s response has made sure that even dramatic options such as this are still on the table. While it is too soon to understand if this type of tracing will help communities such as Indio, Rancho Mirage, Victorville and more, this proactive approach is certainly a step in the right direction on many levels.
