College students in Johnson County are helping fight COVID

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG) – College students in Johnson County are helping fight COVID. Forty four University of Iowa College students are conducting all of the contact tracing in Johnson County in order to slow the spread within the community. Sam Jarvis with the Johnson County Department of Public Health says they could hire three or four full-time trained professionals, but partnering with the College of Public Health means the students can get hands on experience in their field of studies during a pandemic, while earning college credits.
