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 stay 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 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 physical 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. • 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. To enable Exposure Notifications, go to the Settings app on your iPhone.
There is no identifiable reference to taking the vaccine as it didn’t yet exist when this badly outdated app was last updated half a pandemic ago. Masking, isolating, washing hands, etc. But don’t get a vaccine. Some might follow this advice because it is science and nothing more. And get sick as a result. Why is the CDC even involved with this?
Please update the information and data for COVID-19
This COVID19 Apple and CDC App Should be Reviewed and Updated. Currently, There are COVID19 Vaccines. Other Than Screening and Testing, This App Should Provide Information About Vaccination Accessibility and Availability. Without Updated Information, This App Appears Pretty Useless.
1. Has not been updated in 4 months. 2. Says a negative test result could be negative because test was done too soon after exposure. App gives no idea as to how long after exposure testing should be done. A while back during the peak of BLM demonstrations, I read that testing should be done 1-2 weeks later, with most opinions being (closer to) 2 weeks. 3. Reference sCDC website for additional information. There is no link to tap on. There should be a link, preferably to the specific web page.
Shouldn’t there be a question to determine if user has started vaccination protocol?
It told me NOT to get tested after I write that I had been in contact or near someone that was near a positive person. This app doesn’t actually help you find resources. It’s a waste of time. Use your local government page for clear information.
I would love it if it worked consistently. But the exposure notifications keep getting turned off with no notification that it’s off. I just randomly check in the app and they’re off. Sometimes it does this weird rapid on/off switching that I can’t stop it from doing unless I uninstall and then reinstall the app. I really wish it worked better but I keep it anyway because it’s better than nothing at the moment.
Make this app or exposure notifications for iPad users. Other than that, great app!
This app should allow me to see into hot spots of transmission via a heat map. It should also allow me to input data and record my locations so that if I do have symptoms or test positive, I could upload that to the CDC. The fact that this came out and there have been no further updates makes it’s development look like just a CYA move on the part of tech companies like Apple Google and Facebook, when they were named dropped by the President. Not to mention that there are no mentions of it being an aerosolized virus, which the President knew back in Jan. and the CDC just added in Sept. This application could have been something useful like countries have developed to stop community spread or just something better than self guided FAQ and cheap web 1.0 portal. What a complete failure.
