Covid Alert DE app
Step 1: Download the app from the Iphone App Store or Android Google Play Store
Step 2: Once you decide to opt in for exposure notifications, your phone will anonymously share random Bluetooth keys that change every 10-20 minutes with other phones that are using the app and are in close proximity.
Step 3: Your phone and others using the app will exchange those Bluetooth keys in the background, without draining your phone’s battery or data. This is a passive process that begins once you enable notifications, and functions without the app open.
Step 4: When app users test positive for COVID-19 and they decide to share the results through the app by entering a special 6 digit code, the list of random keys they have encountered in the past 14 days is checked against theirs.
Step 5: If there is a match, the app alerts the other individual they are a close contact, encourages them to get tested for COVID-19 and to self-quarantine.
