As a Contact Officer you are responsible to locate and interview persons who had contact to a case and to follow up their health status on a daily basis. This helps preventing the spread of diseases. With the help of SORMAS you can save many lives. If a surveillance officer identifies a contact of a patient that needs to be followed up, he creates the contact on his SORMAS tablet. A task will automatically be generated for contact follow-up which will be assigned to you. Additionally, the Supervisor can also assign a new task to you, when required. You will always be notified on your tablet.
