How does UCD Contact Tracing work?

UCD is working closely with HSE Contact Tracing to follow up on all cases of Covid 19 reported to either party involving members of the University community.

The University has appointed a full time Covid 19 Contact Tracing Coordinator to coordinate its internal contact tracing activities. The details of Covid 19 cases involving staff and students are passed to this individual, who then follows up internally within UCD to ensure that all practicable steps have been taken to identify and where necessary make contact with the affected persons close contacts.

The UCD Contact Tracing Coordinator also liaises directly with the HSE Contact Tracing Team and provides information to same allow for rapid contact tracing.
