COVID Alert NY

New York State Department of Health
This is the official app of New York State, run by the NYS Department of Health side by side with New York’s comprehensive COVID-19 contact tracing effort. It’s goal is to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 amongst NY’s diverse communities by:

1. Alerting you if a sick person spends 10 mins or more within 6 feet of you, because this puts you at a high risk of catching the coronavirus.
2. Letting you to contribute to the health and safety of your community by alerting others if you yourself test positive, WITHOUT REVEALING YOUR IDENTITY TO ANYONE!
3. Helping you handle contact with a sick person or a positive test result for COVID-19. You can choose to educate yourself using this app or requesting a conversation with one of our experienced Health Advisors, again while fully respecting your privacy.
4. Keep a private log of your own symptoms.

The app leverages a completely private and secure Bluetooth-based technology that Apple and Google developed in conjunction with MIT. The app’s source code is available to the public and has been vetted extensively by privacy and security experts. We never see your location or identity, and no information on the use of this app can be traced back to you (except your phone number if you explicitly share it with us so our Health Advisors can call you back).

Help us Stop the Spread of COVID-19 in New York, in our beloved communities. Share this app with your friends and family so we can all be safer, together.
