COVID Alert NY – an application for Android that provides users with the opportunity to protect themselves as well as their family members from coronavirus.
New York State Department of Health offers users to activate exposure notifications and avoid contact with infected people. In order to do so, it is necessary to turn on Bluetooth on a mobile device. Such measures are quite effective in fighting against coronavirus and available in other similar apps like COVIDSafe.
Users may get alerted if they spent more than 10 minutes within six feet of someone who tested positive. Moreover, you can inform other people about it and help them avoid contact.
The app shows detailed information where users can find out how fast COVID 19 is spreading. In addition, it is possible to know the total number of people who tested positive.
Notably, your personal information stays anonymous for third parties. COVID Alert NY does not track your location nor collects info that can identify you, which is quite convenient. You are able to start using the service right after its installation.
