Description

COVIDaware MN is the official exposure notification app of the State of Minnesota. With the COVIDaware MN app, your phone gets notified when you may have been exposed to COVID-19. The app is built with privacy-preserving Exposure Notification technology developed by Apple and Google in partnership with the nonprofit PathCheck Foundation. COVIDaware MN exchanges anonymous Bluetooth keys with other app users when you are within 6 feet of each other for more than 15 minutes. If an app user reports they tested positive for COVID-19, the phones they exchanged keys with are anonymously notified. The notifications let Minnesotans know when they should take extra care and get tested. Nobody ever knows your location or identity, and no information on the use of this app can be traced back to you. COVIDaware MN is made available by the State of Minnesota to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. Like wearing a mask, social distancing, and washing hands, it adds another layer to our defense against the virus. No single layer is completely effective by itself, but when used together, they make us all safer. The app is part of a comprehensive contact tracing initiative managed by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). If you test positive for COVID-19, an MDH contact investigator will provide a test verification code you enter into the COVIDaware MN app. After you enter the verification code, other app users will be anonymously notified that they were near someone who has recently tested positive. No personal data or location tracking occurs within this app. The app’s source code is available to the public and has been carefully inspected by privacy and security experts.

    I was not given a code. I don’t know how to obtain the code. I am positive and I am healthy and tech savvy. I am doing my due diligence but if you don’t make this easier for much sicker people and people who are not tech savvy, people are not going to input there positive test results. The app needs to show people how to obtain the code. Thank you!
  • Not able to report positive.

    VaultHealth does not have a verification code, so cannot input positive results. What good is the tracking if people can’t input positive results?
  • This app is a joke

    Don’t even work. Setting is glitched because I can’t even change the setting to alert me when I’ve been exposed. MN need to fix this error.
