The app works alongside state, county, and city government health departments. We are not a government agency. Our mission is to build mobile technology to fight the pandemic while defending digital privacy. The COVID-19 pandemic, however, presents a once-in-a-lifetime challenge to society. Since this crisis began, governments have taken the lead on testing for the virus, issuing stay-at-home orders and manual contact tracing.
The app makes it easier for governments to focus on their role, by narrowing the scope of manual contact tracing and testing efforts. We are working closely with local public health officials to verify testing results and provide them with the tools they need to act quickly.
