50,000 Download SlowCOVIDNC App in First Day

SlowCOVIDNC, the official exposure notification app of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), was downloaded 50,000 times in its first day.  It is completely anonymous and does not collect, store, or share personal information or location data.  

Download the SlowCOVIDNC app from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, enable your Bluetooth and Exposure Notification settings, and be notified if you have been in close contact with someone who has shared a positive COVID-19 test result in the app.

Once you opt-in to the notification system, you can also anonymously share a positive COVID-19 test result in the app. SlowCOVIDNC protects your identity and privacy while empowering you to protect yourself, your family, and your community.
