Apple Updates COVID-19 App to Let Users Anonymously Share Info With CDC

Posted June 9, 2020 at 2:52pm by iClarified · 3202 views
Apple has updated its COVID-19 app to let users anonymously share information with the CDC.

The COVID-19 app has up-to-date information from trusted sources about the coronavirus disease that is impacting people across the world. It has a screening tool so you can find out what you should do now for yourself or for a loved one. And it gives you access to resources you may need to feel supported and informed.

TechCrunch reports that following the 4.0 update, users can share their age, number of existing health conditions, symptoms, potential exposure risk, and state with CDC to help the organization improve its screen protocol.

The app will also use the aggregated data to assist public health agencies and the CDC in their efforts to help the public with the best available information about potential risk factors around COVID-19, and around what constitutes exposure and exposure risk.

You can download Apple COVID-19 from the App Store for free.
