COVID Alert NJ is a free and secure exposure notification app. Here's how it works:
- Download COVID Alert NJ on the App Store or on Google Play Store. Opt-in to receive "Exposure Notifications"
- As you go about your day, the app will use Bluetooth to sense any "close contacts" - other app users who are within 6 feet of you for more than 10 minutes.
- When your app senses a close contact, your phone will exchange a secure random code with the close contact's phone. It's important to note that your name and location are never disclosed.
- If you test positive for COVID-19, a public health representative will call you and ask if you're willing to anonymously notify your "close contacts" by uploading your app's close contact codes
- Each day, the app will compare your list of close contact codes to the list of codes associated with positive COVID-19 app users. If there's a match you will get an Exposure Alert, along with appropriate next steps.
