The first Apple-Google tracing app is here

Virginia officials yesterday announced the release of the first statewide mobile app to trace the spread of COVID-19 using the Bluetooth-based interface developed jointly by Apple and Google. The app, called Covidwise, runs on the Exposure Notifications API that the two tech giants released in May for state and national health agencies to use in their efforts to control the coronavirus pandemic. The state can't require residents to install the app, but Gov. Ralph Northam encouraged as many as possible to download it. "It doesn’t rely on GPS or your personal information, and while we want everyone to download it, it is voluntary," he said. Benjamin Freed reports.
