1 EBOLA CONTACT TRACING FOR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENTS An Overview of North Carolina’s Procedure for Ebola Contact Tracing : Guidance, Tools, and Exercises for Public Health Presented by the N.C. Communicable Disease Branch October 2014

2 Use this next week to Get Ready:  Acknowledge the critical role that contact tracing plays in interrupting disease transmission  Assess your capacity to conduct a scalable Ebola contact tracing event  Describe the process and locate the data collection data management tools  Prepare for onsite state and federal assistance  Exercise multiple tabletop exercises for Ebola contact tracing

3

4  R – Review the Guidance  E – Engage your Epi Team  A – Assess your Capacity  D – Designate your Tracers  Y – Yes to Tabletop Exercises

5  Deploy state team immediately for assistance with data management  Epidemiologist  Deploy state team for field investigations  Nurse Consultant  Disease Intervention Specialist  Access to Risk Assessment Advisor  Personal Readiness Kits  Thermometers

6  Prepare, Practice and Practice  Know the Procedures  Know the Tools  Talk, Reassure, Support  Travel in Pairs  Do not touch

10 a. Identify contacts by interviewing patient or other informants b. Interview all identified contacts to evaluate need for PH follow-up Monitor contacts with high- or low-risk exposures for 21 days following last exposure Release on 22 nd day following last exposure 1. Identification and interviewing 2. Active monitoring 3. Discharge

11 At ANY point in this process you may encounter contacts with symptoms of Ebola. You must know and be able to carry out your LHD procedure to safely respond to this situation.

23 EID EXXX 1. Every case and potential contact receives a unique ID Contact ID Number n NNNN-XXX Contact ID Number 1 NNNN-XXX 3. If any contact becomes a case they also receive an NC EDSS Event Number: 2. For each case a person may have been exposed to, a contact ID Number is created: Every potential contact will receive a minimum of two ID numbers: an EID and at least one contact ID number (a person may have multiple contact ID numbers if exposed to multiple cases). They will also have an NC EDSS event number if they become symptomatic.
