As COVID-19 cases mount in Lincoln County, local health officials plan to adopt a nationally available and open source tool to monitor patients.
Kathi Hooper, health department director, told county commissioners Oct. 14 that they hoped to have Sara Alert up and running by the beginning of next week. The service is free to the county, she said.
“There will be some initial data entry and then I think it’s going to be a great [tool],” Hooper said.
Flathead County already employs the system and health officials here hope it will make efforts to collaborate on contact tracing more efficient.
