SANTA FE, N.M. — Contact tracing is central to New Mexico's effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and move into the next phases of economic recovery. The state is now accepting applications for over 200 contact-tracing positions.
The hiring will be done virtually, and the work will be done remotely. State officials say the positions range from entry-level through supervisory.
Qualifications include experience in a health-related field or work with communities on social service matters, social work or case management.
New Mexico has five regional contact-tracing teams statewide, with approximately 150 Health Department personnel already conducting contact tracing efforts.
To apply for a contact-tracing position, visit the State Personnel Office website and click on "View Job Opportunities and Apply" at the top right. Additional positions are likely to become available over the summer.
