When you indicate a preference for joining the SIT, you're quietly ushered into another office. Police Chief Lowell Grant enters a few minutes later. "We're being a little discrete about this because we don't want vigilante mobs forming. But as non-residents, you may be able to ask questions where we can't. So, for the most part, do NOT present yourselves as officially working for the city, unless you don't think there's any other way to get the intel."
He pulls out a thin file with some papers and memos inside it. "Here's all the data we've gotten so far about the disease spread--obviously, it's pretty spartan, but that's where you come in. As we mentioned before, this is either a deliberate bio-warfare attack, or a Typhoid Mary case. If the latter, we need 'Mary', whoever she is, brought in so we can administer a cure once we find it. If it's a deliberate act of bio-terrorism, we need to find out both who did it, and what the long-term goal is. It's likely, in the case of a deliberate action, that the perpetrators also have at least some information about the disease, so if at all possible, you should try to catch the ringleader alive. But dead is still preferable to 'at large', so if you don't have any other choice, waste him, her or them."
He indicates a rather meek man in glasses, the only other person in the room besides yourselves. "This is Nick Colton. He's going to be your contact in the field--we don't want you coming in every day and making a report."
Nick stands up and nods to you all, pushing up his glasses as he does so. "I'm in Room 708 at your hotel. I will be staying there constantly from this point forward, and have a direct land-line to City Hall, which will be useful since we're jamming radio use. In addition to tracking the spread of the disease back to its origins, you might want to keep an eye out for organized efforts to breach the quarantine--while we expect some attempts to be made just normally by individuals or small groups who have had enough, it's likely that the people behind this--assuming it's not a Typhoid Mary, of course--are going to be trying to get infected individuals out of the city, rather than try to escape themselves. After all, going themselves means risking getting shot in the woods, but if they can spread the disease to other towns, the quarantine will basically be over, because there's no point to it."

Herra wastes little time getting to work, she has a passing familiarity with the city but also knows how to spread her wings a little. Returning to the Kingsdale home for the friendless she asks around about who would like to make a little extra money then sends them to watch various exit and entry points to the city to determine if anyone is making an organized effort to leave the city. Sher promises to split 5,000 credits among them with a bonus to the one who finds out anything important.While her network spreads about the city, not unlike a virus, Herra goes to the hospital to watch for large movements of patients, she takes up residence in a shop nearby to watch from all hours of the day, laying down a big tip to keep the owner happy (5,000).

During his QEB patrols, Growler sends Pack Leader SnackHappy a quick message and sneaks off when he happens to hears something that could lead to some leads to find the Typhoid Mary or whoever is intentionally spreading the disease. While he does not actually catch anyone, he finds some hints at some plans of someone behind the scenes. Passing these hints on to the rest of the investigation team, Growler hopes that they can hurt any contingency plans that they have in place.

Sara sat down with some of the earliest patients to have started showing symptoms of the disease. She talked with them about what they remembered, who they came in contact with. Pulling out a couple psychically sensitive crystals, she put together a device to allow her to read their minds and help them remember, leading them in guided meditation to recall details their senses had picked up but their memories weren’t recalling.

Naturally, Cailly finds herself falling in with the wrong crowds. She easily slips into her "criminal" persona and mingles, buying a few beers, refusing even more. She discretely inquires as to who might have been the first people to show up with this disease, and relays any information to the rest of the group.
