California launches CA Notify, a new digital tool to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19. Starting Thursday, Dec. 10, Californians can opt-in to receive COVID-19 notifications informing them if they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for the virus.
CA Notify is a digital tool that protects privacy and security – it does not collect device location to detect exposure and does not share a user’s identity. The tool was developed in partnership with Google and Apple and piloted with the help of the University California, San Diego and the University of California, San Francisco. Visit canotify.ca.gov.
