TOP REVIEWS FROM COVID-19 CONTACT TRACING
I learned so much about COVID-19 and what everyone's concerns are in keeping safe. This course will give me the ability to help many people understand how they protect those they come in contact with.
4 STARS -- AS A FORMER MEDICAL REPORTER i FOUND SOME OF THE COURSE REPETITIVE AND A BIT PATERNALISTIC. bUT i UNDERSTAND it is repeat things like recovery time; infectous time; other side effects, etc.
This course was amazing and very informative. I, now, have clear and concise knowledge about being an effective Contact Tracer, and I'm looking forward to putting my newly-attained skills to the test.
This course was very interesting, well-presented and easy to follow. I think Ms. Gurley deserves great applause for producing such a very valuable tool in helping folks prepare to be a Contact Tracer!
