This App helps health officials support and protect you, your friends and family. The app speeds up the current manual process of finding people who have been in close contact with someone with COVID-19. This means you will be contacted more quickly if you are at risk. This reduces the chances of you passing on the virus to your family, friends and other people in the community. The data collected in this app will be held by the federal government, only state health authorities responsible with contact tracing will be able to access it.
