******IMPORTANT NOTE: THIS IS NOT A CITY OF lAUREL PROGRAM. IT IS THROUGH THE NATIONAL OPINION RESEARCH CENTER. PLEASE CONTACT THEM THROUGH THE LINK PROVIDED. THE CITY OF LAUREL IS SIMPLY PASSING ALONG THIS INFORMATION AS A COURTESY. IT IS THEIR PROGRAM.

If you’ve been waiting for your chance to do something positive in the fight against the Coronavirus, Mayor Craig A. Moe wants you to know about the following opportunity.

The Maryland Department of Health has teamed up with National Opinion Research Center (NORC), to conduct contact tracing state-wide.  They’ll be using a state-of-the-art contact tracing platform called ‘COVID Link,” which will assist in collecting information about people who test positive for COVID-19 and any individuals they have come in contact with.

NORC is now recruiting for Contact Tracers in Maryland. Individuals with the following qualifications are invited to apply at this link: https://careers.norc.org/en-us/job/495613/contact-tracer

 Qualifications for Contact Tracers include:  

· We need people who can be empathic and caring while also being able to work quickly and maintain quality standards.

· For those without direct experience in the field, we have found that teachers, real estate agents, and some sales/customer service jobs have skills which translate to data collection positions.

· This work does offer a chance to work from home, but people will need to be willing to work set shifts (4-6 hours at a time) and have a quiet space in their homes.

· Individuals should have their own computer and access to high speed Internet

Under this agreement, Maryland will be able to significantly ramp up its case investigation capacity up to 1,000 new cases per day. If you or someone you know is qualified, sign up today.
