Elizabeth Nelson's City Council Blog

I write a City Council newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council.

Sign up to receive it first via email, or read it here later on this blog. I also post my perspectives on how issues were resolved, and charts of how Council voted at each meeting. I post Ward 4 road construction news under "Construction", and other news that affects Ward 4 residents under the category "Ward 4 News". News that affects all city residents is posted under "City News".

MI COVID Alert app released for iPhone and Android

The State of Michigan has released a free app for iPhone and Android for COVID-19 contract tracing.

https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/0,9753,7-406-99891_102592---,00.html



MI COVID Alert is a free and easy-to-use mobile phone app that can:

  • alert you if you may have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus

  • advise you on what to do to protect yourself and others

  • alert other app users that you were in close contact with, if you test positive for coronavirus

The app will help our existing contact tracing operation by:

  • reducing the time it takes to alert you if you’re a possible close contact

  • alerting contacts that you might have forgotten you met up with

  • enabling us to contact people who are unknown to each other

Contact tracing is a vital part of slowing the spread of the virus. The more people that download and use the app, the more it will help contact tracing.


If you use the app you will:

  • be alerted if you may have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus

  • be able to track any symptoms you have and get advice on what to do to protect yourself and others

  • be able to anonymously warn other app users that you were in close contact with, if you test positive for coronavirus
