The COVID-19 app has up-to-date information from trusted sources about the coronavirus disease that is impacting people across the world. It has a screening tool so you can find out what you should do now for yourself or for a loved one. And it gives you access to resources you may need to feel supported and informed. The COVID-19 app is developed in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the White House, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). • Use the simple screening tool to determine what you should do if you are concerned about COVID-19. Answer a few questions about symptoms, travel, and contact you’ve had with those who might have the disease. And then get a specific, recommended action based on the CDC’s current guidelines, such as practice social distancing or talk to a doctor. • Save previous screening results for you or for a loved one to refer to at a later date or in conversations with a healthcare provider. • Learn best practices for washing your hands, practicing social distancing, quarantining, monitoring your symptoms, and disinfecting surfaces. • Get answers to the most frequently asked questions about COVID-19, including who is at risk of serious illness and how to recognize the symptoms. • Know that data you provide in the COVID-19 app will not be shared with Apple, the CDC, or anyone without your permission. Data entered will be stored and encrypted on device with a passcode. This app was developed in partnership with CDC. It is not meant as an endorsement of any Apple products.
App is very stutters on iPad and doesn’t fill the whole screen. Completely omits support for older devices during what appears to be a pandemic. Nice oversight. Worst offense is that the app offers zero advice for people who are already COVID positive. Another convenient oversight. Skip this app.
is NOT Supported iOS 12 !
This is just a bunch of questions and does not use the built in Covid-19 tracing. What is the point of this app?
If there is a way to set reminders without compromising privacy, you should add the option for daily reminders. And CDC- FEMA need to make a companion for Android. I mean c’mon.
The app works well but it is only an information source. I was expecting a COVID-19 tracker to alert me when I get close to someone who is infected .
That ship sailed a long time ago. Trying to give a false sense of safety, I guess. Playing into the hands of deniers.
I installed the apple official COVID app and still greyed out
It has a nice, appealing structure to it but the usability of it seems almost empty. It’s a bunch of scripts it seems, gathering data from all sources with the keyword Covid. However when you are attempting to find out more about how this relates to you personally, it’s almost non-existent. All you’re reading is a bunch of data and numbers but what do all those numbers mean? It’s missing the algorithms that connect the data to form conclusive facts where you can then analyze trends to see where you or your community stand in the large scope of things. Ultimately, it’s a lazy app that can basically run on its own but has no heart or real person behind it. It will confuse you before it can help you, in my opinion.
This is not a exposure tracing tool. This is not something that you can use to track who you come across/in contact with for contact tracing.
