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.
Just an app for apple to uphold good image in my opinion.
This app is not listed under COVID-19 Exposure Login iOS feature. It needs to be especially since this is a Apple COVID-19 app and that is a new Apple COVID-19 Settings. This app needs to be listed there.
Testing is still all but unavailable but many people have probably already had Covid-19. The antibody tests are also very hard to come by and are still too inaccurate to be really reliable. I'm almost certain that I contracted Covid-19 in mid-February. There should be some way to report either confirmed or strongly suspected cases with approximate dates.
I appreciate the screening tool and access to advice based on CDC guidance. Now add location options for those of us who live overseas.
Infringement me and restrict me? Please respect my privacy
This should be an amazing way for people to track Covid around them, and protect themselves. My only problem with the app is that it isn’t working for me. I cannot turn on exposure logging because my phone says there are “no active apps” installed.
I have tried and tried to navigate this app to follow cases in my state. I have yet to be able to do that. Every time I hit a link to a ‘cases in your area’ it just reloads the same screen. Very frustrating. Found a different app that does exactly what you want from an app like this. Look on the app store and it is not too hard to figure out. Be well, be safe, take care and notice of those around you.
On the update they said COVID-19 tracking and yet it does not let me do that in settings!!!?
The app is rated 4+ yet the screening tool only works for people over 18 It’s also hard to use and practically useless Apple, fix your app my guy 🤦♂️
