SlowCOVIDNC is the official COVID-19 Exposure Notification app for the NC Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), launching September 22, 2020. This is a free download in your app store (available for Android and Apple devices). It leverages Bluetooth technology to let app users know if they may have been exposed to COVID-19, enabling them to quickly act to protect themselves and those in their community. SlowCOVIDNC allows users to be notified if they may have been in close contact with someone who has shared that they have a positive COVID-19 test result through the app. Users can anonymously share a positive COVID-19 test result to notify others of exposure and help slow the spread of COVID-19. The app is available in English and Spanish. Visit the NCDHHS website for additional information (links below) about the SlowCOVIDNC app.
