Taught by Johns Hopkins scientist Emily Gurley, PhD, MPH, COVID-19 Contact Tracing is an introductory level course that equips learners with the training that may be required to become a contact tracer amid this pandemic. Johns Hopkins’ site explains, “The new Coursera class, COVID-19 Contact Tracing, teaches the basics of interviewing people diagnosed with the virus, identifying their close contacts who might have been exposed, and providing them guidance for self-quarantine for two weeks.” The course syllabus outlines six modules that are clearly focused on preparing learners to both understand the disease and effectively perform the contact tracing necessary to fight against it.
