Employment   Opportunity… New York State Launches Coronavirus Contact Tracer   Program
Governor Andrew Cuomo has announced that New   York State is accepting applications for Contact Tracers to help slow the   spread of the Coronavirus. This program will help control the   infection rate and will be executed in coordination with New Jersey and   Connecticut. It will serve as an important resource to gather data and be a   model to replicate across the country. Applicants are being sought for   the role of Contact Tracer, Team Supervisor and Community Support Specialist.
The Contact Tracers are important to Long   Island, as “contact tracing” is one of the 7 metrics of the Governor’s   reopening plan for the state. The program will include a baseline of 30   contact tracers for every 100,000 individuals with a total of 6,400 to 17,000   tracers statewide. Currently, the Long Island region requires a minimum   of 852 contract tracers, which could change due to an increase or decline in   the number of COVID-19 positive cases. Go to to   apply online.
New PSA   Contest: ​The Governor also   announced a contest asking New Yorkers to create and share a PSA video   explaining why people should wear a mask in public. You can learn more   at Please feel free to share with your   constituents.
