Disease Prevention, Surveillance, and Contact Tracing
Our Center has been supporting tribes in tracking cases and setting up contact tracing and surveillance systems in order to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. This has included providing guidance on best practices for quarantine and home isolation and connections to community resources as necessary.
Our infectious disease and health communication experts are developing a web-based COVID-19 dashboard that tribes nationwide can access to use to reduce community spread and severity of disease and deaths.
We are also engaged in convalescent plasma treatment trials, partnering with tribes in preparation for vaccine distribution, and new technologies to promote better diagnostic testing, symptom monitoring and mapping of hotspots.
