On The Phone With Vt. Contact Tracers


When Vermonters test positive for COVID, it sets into motion a series of calls with the Health Department. First, a notification call, then a conversation with a contact tracer to try and identify all recent close contacts. Independent radio program producer Erica Heilman called a tracer in Newport to talk about the job. This program was broadcast on VPR on April 6, 2021, the same day that the governor announced his "Vermont Forward" plan for reopening the state.
