State launches WA Notify to fight COVID-19

Your phone has become the latest tool the state of Washington uses to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Earlier this week, the state launched WA Notify, an anonymous exposure notification tool. WA Notify can alert you if you’ve been near another user who later tests positive for COVID. It is entirely private, simple to use and free.

iPhone users need to go to Settings, enable Exposure Notifications and follow the prompts. Android users can download the WA Notify app from the Google Play Store.

The more people who use WA Notify, the more effective it will be. So please wear a mask, keep physical distance, delay even small gatherings for now and add WA Notify to your phone.
