24 Hour Contact Tracing Helpline for Schools

24 Hour Contact Tracing Helpline for Schools

Establish a 24-hour contact tracing helpline for schools.

Why is this important?

A full-time helpline should be established to take the burden off school leaders who are left hanging on helplines for hours.

As restrictions are eased, and parents return to the office/workplace, contact tracing for school children must become more efficient.

This will protect vulnerable parents and children. It will also decrease absenteeism in both schools and workplaces.
