This rapid review explores the question “How can we undertake ‘people-powered’ contact tracing activity at scale? What types of options are available?”. The main focus of the report will be on investigating any methods and evidence around digitally enhanced people-powered contact tracing. The spectrum of available methodologies for contact tracing range from paper-based methods to fully automated, anonymous digital contact tracing using mobile phone Apps and Bluetooth or geolocation services. Selected examples are provided.
