    Life as a contact tracer

    The main job is to contact people who have been exposed to the coronavirus by a person who has tested positive. Some people are a little suspicious. Some people hang up after I ask for their date of birth and address. I understand that, the mistrust of the government, having grown up under communism.

    Since the late 1990s, when an outbreak of HIV infections threatened to shutter the multibillion-dollar industry, the mainstream porn community has implemented procedures that require all performers to be tested for HIV and a host of other sexually transmitted infections every 14 days before they can be cleared to work.

    Reopening some states heightens the risk of coronavirus surges in others

    The problem, experts say, is that diagnostic testing remains so limited that a second surge of cases could silently build. The Trump administration’s goal of conducting 2 million tests a week is below what most experts say is needed to adequately track the virus, and that plan won’t be in place until at least the end of May.

    Contact tracing is the next big hurdle in the push to re-open cities

    If we are indeed in the midst of a war against an invisible enemy, a contact-tracing offensive — launched by both an army of human tracers and an arsenal of technological tools — will be a big part of the key to winning. In the U.S., the most likely scenario for widespread, tech-enabled contact tracing lies with work done by Google and Apple.
