Lebanon School District hires contact tracer

WLWT |

The district spent federal CARES money to hire a nurse to only track and work with those who may have been exposed to the coronavirus.

“The cases that we had during the first week, we were able to do all of the contact tracing within two to three hours, and the health department has told us that it would take them two to three days to do that amount of contact tracing,” according to Superintendent Todd Yohey.

By quickly identifying students and staff members who may have been exposed, the district said it can help control new outbreaks before they’re able to grow.
