“Staffing has been expanded from four individuals conducting both disease investigation and contact tracing to seven disease investigators and four contact tracers,” Walker-Bauer said then. “The extra staffing is being currently supported by internal staff members from other CCHD programs areas including: Administration, Environmental Health programming, Health Education, Home Visiting programming, Vital Statistics and WIC programming.

“Several Environmental Health inspection programs have been suspended with the exception of those involving business commerce activities including plumbing, home sewage systems and private drinking water.”
