Help Stop the Spread of COVID-19. Download COVID Alert CT!
To stop the spread of COVID-19, Connecticut needs everyone to do their part. One way you can help yourself and your community is by downloading the COVID Alert CT App

COVID Alert CT is a voluntary, anonymous, exposure-notification smartphone app. If the app senses that you have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 you will receive an alert. Knowing about a potential exposure will allow you to self-quarantine immediately, get tested, and reduce the potential exposure risk to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and others.

The COVID Alert CT app can be used on both Apple and Android devices.

Apple devices:

  1. Go to Settings > Exposure Notifications > Turn on Exposure Notifications
  2. Tap Continue and select United States > Connecticut
  3. Complete COVID Alert CT Onboarding

Android devices:

The COVID Alert CT App can be downloaded from Google Play. To verify that exposure notifications are enabled on an Android phone, open the COVID Alert CT app. Click on the Settings tab and ensure that Exposure Notifications are set to On. If not, click on Exposure Notifications and turn the toggle on.

Thank you for doing your part to keep your family, community and our state safe. For more information about COVID Alert CT click HERE .
