To keep up with the demand for contact tracing, the DeWitt/Piatt Bi-County Health Department is seeking to add more staff.
Director Dave Remmert says contact tracing efforts are beginning to bog down his staff and their functions and so they are seeking additional LPNs to apply.
Remmert indicates as their programs begin to resume, they are being forced to put their personnel in other areas. The demand has become too great to continue to operate with the staff they currently have.
Remmert indicates they are likely looking at making multiple hires and while for now, the positions would be temporary, they could become permanent employees down the road if it is warranted.
