WANotify.org: Your Phone Can Help Stop the Spread of COVID-19
Washington State Department of Health working to stop slow the spread of COVID-19 across the state. On November 30, Washington State launched WA Exposure Notifications (WA Notify). It uses smartphones to alert users if they may have been exposed to COVID-19. It is completely private, and doesn’t know or track who you are or where you go.

How does it work?
When you enable WA Notify, your smartphone exchanges random, anonymous codes with the phones of people you are near who have also enabled WA Notify. The app uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to exchange these random codes without revealing any information about you. If another WA Notify user you've been near in the last two weeks later tests positive for COVID-19 and adds their verification code to the app, you’ll get an anonymous notification that you’ve had a possible exposure.

For more information about Washington Exposure Notifications please visit WANotify.org
