Supercharged contact tracing. Right in your pocket.
COVID Trace is a contact tracing mobile app developed by the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services that uses a technology called the Exposure Notifications System from Google and Apple. The app exchanges anonymous information with other phones in your vicinity and can notify you if you've come in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
- The app uses Bluetooth to exchange random codes with nearby phones.
- Every day, it checks a list of random codes from people who tell the app they tested positive.
- If it finds codes that match, the app notifies you that you've been exposed and explains what to do next.
Protecting your community. And your privacy.
With the COVID Trace app, you don't have to choose between your privacy and the health and safety of your community. The app was designed to protect and preserve your privacy. It doesn't use GPS and can't share your location or information.
No one will know:
- Your location
- Your name or address
- Your health information
- Who you met
- Who tested positive
