COVID Trace is a non-profit offering a COVID-19 exposure notification app for iOS and Android. People using COVID Trace can expect privacy and simplicity. With COVID Trace, health departments get an app and metrics that are an extension of their existing efforts.
View our interactive Figma prototype to see all of the functionality of the app.
How It Works
COVID Trace works by using anonymous bluetooth exposure notification functionality recently released by Apple & Google. COVID Trace maintains your privacy by checking for exposures only on your phone and never collecting any personally identifiable information.
The diagram below explains how phones anonymously exhange random IDs with each other, and when someone tests positive for COVID-19, how you get alerted if you've interacted with them.
Partnering with States & Public Health Authorities
We are working mulitple States and public health authorities to make COVID Trace available for download by their citizens. The app source code and infrastructure are all open source and available under a liberal license.
Customizing COVID Trace for your specific needs is simple and can be deployed at scale within a matter of days. Additionally COVID Trace provides comprehensive reporting metrics so State and health officials can better plan and respond to outbreaks.
