The University of Wyoming has adopted the state of Wyoming’s voluntary COVID-19 exposure notification smartphone app, Care19 Alert.
The app can alert users if they have been in close contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Wyoming is one of the first states in the country to launch a COVID-19 app using fully anonymous technology developed by Apple and Google. Using the app can help slow the spread of COVID-19.
UW students, faculty and staff can use the UW affiliate program in the app. All Wyoming residents can use the app and are encouraged to do so. The app is free, and its use is completely voluntary. It can be downloaded from the Apple and Google Play stores.
For more information, including Gov. Mark Gordon’s announcement of the app and instructions for downloading, see https://uwyo.teamdynamix.com/TDClient/1940/Portal/KB/?CategoryID=18788.
The Care19 Alert app is separate from UW’s COVID Pass, a health screening tool accessible through WyoWeb. UW students, faculty and staff who are on campus this fall are expected to conduct a daily wellness check through COVID Pass. UW students, faculty and staff who will remain off campus due to remote work and learning are recommended to complete and submit the health screen daily.
