WA Notify is a tool for Android issued by the Washington State and Department of Health. This app is designed to help control the spread of coronavirus.
This utility is an official government exposure notification software. The main purpose is to help people to stay aware of the coronavirus situation around them. It offers safety for the surrounding community, though the technology is depending on the consciousness of its members.
The technology tracks your movement and remembers the places you have visited. Devices with WA Notify exchange data via Bluetooth and analyze the proximity by the power of the signal. Users are encouraged to self report in case of contagion and positive test results for the virus. If someone gets sick, others will know when they may have been exposed and for how long.
By default, the application securely keeps all collected data for fourteen days. But there is a possibility to leave the system and delete all the data at any time.
To reduce contacts with others to the minimum and stay home, you can use one of the many delivery apps, for example, Home Depot.
