Contact tracing is a vital tool in the fight against COVID-19 in our communities. Find more information below.
We are happy to announce that beginning on July 29, 2020, the Gallatin City-County Health Department will be participating in a pilot launch of an innovative new tool called Sara Alert, to support our monitoring and reporting of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Sara Alert is a standards-based, open source tool that will allow us to efficiently monitor individuals at risk for COVID-19, enabling real-time insights and increased reporting capability to support containment of the virus. The tool allows individuals, who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or potentially exposed to the virus, to report daily symptoms through web, text, email, and robocall. We see this as a force multiplier and an opportunity to apply our time more efficiently to follow-up and coordinate care where most needed.
