ARIAS Training

ARIAS is the platform that OHA, counties, and potentially some Tribes will use to record data from contact tracing calls.

This video, Contact Tracing Data Collection: ARIAS Training, provides a basic overview of the ARIAS system for contact tracers. It can be viewed and revisited as need.

Please note: The ARIAS system is not yet live and available to use. We are sending out this training in advance, so that LPHAs/Tribes can train staff prior to launch.

ARIAS Resources

  • ARIAS User Guide
    A written companion to our training video. It is best used as a reference once the training video has been completed.

Additional ARIAS Trainings

Additional ARIAS trainings will be available to LPHAs, Tribes, and their partners during the ARIAS roll-out process.
