Contact tracers will be working closely with the government and private sector as they profile and interview close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 patients. 

Interior and Local Government (DILG)-Manila director lawyer Rolynne Javier said Manila city residents who wish to apply must be a Bachelor of Science degree holder. Those with degrees in allied medical courses and/or criminology are preferred.

Applicants must also know how to gather data, conduct interviews, and investigate.

Those who be hired will work under a contract of service and will receive a monthly salary of P18,784. 

Applicants can submit their application forms at a drop box at the DILG-Manila office at the City Hall or via online.
