Triton College will offer a free Infectious Disease Contact Tracing training course online June 4 -June 25 through the School of Continuing Education. Upon completion of the Triton course students will be able to conduct infectious disease contact tracing, including coronavirus (COVID-19), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and recommendations. Contact Tracers track the spread of viruses by working with patients to discover and document their points of contact with others. The state of Illinois has developed an $80 million COVID-19 contact tracing program with a goal of having 30 contact tracers for every 100,000 residents. Over 3,000 jobs with wages ranging between $15 to $27 per hour are projected to be created in the state of Illinois through the program. For more information, visit
