CSTE Comment - v5

CSTE supports inclusion of job/workplace employer name and address, job title, job/workplace location, and job/workplace phone number. All of these are important for outbreak detection and investigation. Also, since people often have more than one job, multiple job/workplaces should be able to be captured and exchanged. Often it is useful to have a work phone number in order to reach a patient for an urgent interview by public health.
