As Cook County recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, reopening efforts will depend on public health testing, contact tracing, a sustained healthcare system capacity to respond to new outbreaks and public compliance with existing containment and mitigation efforts. The Hektoen Institute in collaboration with Cook County Department of Health and the Illinois Department of Public Health will participate in addressing the contact tracing component.

The Hektoen Institute is currently accepting resumes from residents of Cook County who are interested in working to stop the spread of COVID-19. Hektoen in collaboration with the Cook County Department of Public Health will offer full-time, temporary Contact Tracer positions with full benefits, and will provide training to develop skills and career paths in public health and patient care. These positions are temporary in nature and will last for 6 months. Approximately 50-60 positions will be filled, including contact tracers, case investigators, and case investigator supervisors.
