As part of California’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, Governor Newsom launched a new Exposure Notification app that can alert people who may have been exposed to someone who is positive for the virus.
I strongly encourage you to use this app to protect yourselves, your co-workers, and your families. It’s built on the Exposure Notification technology developed by Apple and Google, which was designed to provide these alerts while protecting your privacy. Neither your identity nor your location will be shared with other users, Apple, or Google. And to be clear, our company will have no access to the data either.
By using this technology to protect our work place and our homes, we can break the chain of transmission and accelerate the path to recovery.
Many of you in California will get a notification encouraging you to opt into CA Notify. If you’d like to opt in manually, here’s how you can do it:
After you turn on the app can you post/tweet that you are using the app! Let’s keep each other safe and healthy – we owe it to ourselves and to one another.
