Stay Safe with COVID-19 Phone Trackers
It’s safe to say, that with the advancement of new technologies, new positive outcomes have also come out. Two big tech giants, Apple and Google have released apps built to track the novel coronavirus. Sparking unexpected collaboration with public health authorities, these two companies have made it easier to track and be aware of the pandemic. COVID-19 or Coronavirus is still a serious threat around the globe, but an unexpected little device can be one of your best lines of defense against the virus. Yes, that little phone in your pocket can possibly keep you and your family safe!
The apps work by sharing anonymous Bluetooth waves with other nearby phones running the same software, notifying the person if any individual near their radar has possibly been in close contact with the coronavirus within the last 14 days. If an individual is COVID-19 positive, a code is inputted into the app and stored into a health-authority server that makes the anonymous data available to the app when it refreshes daily. So, should the app see a report and it matches a close-contact list, it also suggests quarantining or getting tested due to possible exposure.
Consider New Devices: Better Performance and Tracker
Because these two apps are better designed for newer phones and software, maybe it’s time to consider getting a new phone?

Precautions Just as Important as Tracing Apps
Now we don’t want to send the wrong message – phones are definitely an important part of preventing the spread of the virus. Using COVID-19 tracing/exposure apps on your phone, and socially-distancing by video-calling or phone-calling are integral to stopping the spread. But there are just-as-important steps you can take:
- Wearing a mask at all times, regardless of who you are with and where you are (the home is an exception)
- Limiting gatherings even in the home
- Washing hands/using hand sanitizer when necessary
- Staying 6 ft apart from one another
All of these precautions are just as important, and as citizens, we have to do our part to keep ourselves, our loved ones, and our friends safe!
