To stop the spread of COVID-19, Connecticut needs everyone to do their part. One way you can help yourself and your community is by downloading the COVID Alert CT app, which notifies you if you have been in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
COVID Alert CT is a voluntary, anonymous, exposure-notification smartphone app. You will get an alert if you were in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. Knowing about a potential exposure allows you to self-quarantine immediately, get tested, and reduce the potential exposure risk to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and others.
The more people who participate in COVID Alert CT, the more effective it will be.
Help protect your community while maintaining your privacy. The free mobile app–available to anyone 18 or older who lives, works, or attends college in Connecticut–is available for download from the Google Play Store; iPhone users can enable COVID Alert CT right from the Settings app on iOS.COVID Alert CT is available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Mandarin, Haitian-Creole (Android only), Bengali (Android only), and Arabic.

Then, make sure to opt-in to receive alerts if you have had a potential exposure to someone who tested positive for COVID-19. Your phone exchanges a secure random code with the other phones to record that they were near.
You should know your privacy is protected. The app will never collect, transmit or store your personal information and is completely anonymous. Your personal information cannot be accessed by Google, Apple, or the Connecticut Department of Public Health.
Your location will never be tracked- the app uses Bluetooth technology to detect when another person with the same app comes within 6 feet. Your phone exchanges a secure code with the other phone to record that they were near.
