The Wayne County Health Department is ramping up its efforts of contact tracing during the corona virus pandemic. The Health Department has brought on two more nurses to help with the tracing, which helps health professionals keep an eye on cases of a communicable disease, but also helps to reduce the amount of cases by giving health officials needed data. The health department conducts the traces daily, even before the pandemic, and only had one full time and one part time nurse to do the tracing but needed the extra help during the pandemic.
