The Greater Manchester team responsible for contact tracing individuals testing positive for Covid-19 has developed an e-learning self-study resource for businesses and individuals.
The module is suitable for anyone without prior knowledge. It aims to help gain a better understanding of COVID-19 as a communicable disease, in order that they can make informed decisions regarding the coronavirus in the coming months. Course content will clarify how the disease is spread from person-to-person, demonstrate how to apply the contact tracing model to a variety of scenarios, and clarify the role of self-isolation in helping to prevent further transmission of COVID-19.
Moving forward over the coming months along the government’s roadmap, contact tracing will play an important role in ensuring we can continue to safely unlock the economy, prevent further spread of coronavirus and keep people safe.
In addition, it will help to safeguard your business or organisation as well as any of its staff, customers, clients, visitors or guests as you transition.
The contact tracing training will take around 90 minutes in total and anyone can register to the NHS e-learning portal to access the module online here.
If you or anyone you share this with find themselves having difficulty accessing the platform, queries can be directed to a dedicated support email.
The e-learning resource has been created by the Greater Manchester Integrated Contact Tracing Hub, which was set up by the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership to create a local Contact Tracing response in support of communities across the city-region during the coronavirus pandemic. Course content has been designed in collaboration with the University of Salford.
