COVID-19 Responder

Position Summary

*2/2 Positions Available; Positions Start on August 30th, 2022.

All of the SFDPH positions listed will – in addition to the unique responsibilities described for each position – work as part of a COVID-19 team to conduct several components of contact investigation, contact tracing, and COVID-19 vaccination efforts. Activities will include: calling patients with a new diagnosis and obtaining demographic information, sharing guidance for self-isolation, facilitating referrals and linkage to services for medical and basic needs, and obtaining a list of close contacts from the patient. After the initial call, NHC members will follow up with COVID-19 positive patients to conduct wellness checks and facilitate referrals and linkage to services as needed. NHC members will also conduct outreach to patients eligible for COVID-19 immunization, ensuring that patients receive accurate information while receiving feedback from the patients. Members would also have the opportunity to assist COVID-19 Vaccination Sites in traffic flow direction, 2nd dose and booster scheduling, and eligibility criteria confirmation.

The San Francisco Health Network COVID-19 Responder/Food Access Coordinator will, in addition to the above responsibilities, be a core member of the staff and volunteer teams that address food insecurity through Food Pharmacy and other programming at San Francisco Health Network (SFHN) clinics around San Francisco. Because of COVID-19 we have pivoted our efforts to broadly connect SFHN patients to high-quality, culturally appropriate food resources while also supporting clinics to sustain or launch Food Pharmacy programs. The member’s role is to support patients and staff in executing programming and ensuring the highest quality patient experience as possible. Additionally, the COVID-19 Responder/Food Access Coordinator will be a core member of the City’s COVID-19 response team at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and spend about a third of their time participating in key monitoring and response efforts.
