A Method to Modernize and Enhance Contact Tracing with Location Data
In the earliest stage of an outbreak, contact tracing has always been a robust intervention for containment efforts. However, as an outbreak evolves to pandemic status and transmission advances to community spread, many infected people may not be sure how they contracted the virus. This is where a location-focused approach can help. By taking the simple step of adding location data to the tracing process, public health analysts will be able to perform location analytics to illuminate the places where viral spread is happening outside of direct and prolonged contact between two individuals. In this webinar, you will learn how the ArcGIS platform can support the contact tracing workflow, from data collection and management to analytics and outcome evaluation.
