[ARCHIVED] Bloomfield Health Department Instructs Residents to Download New State COVID-19 App

BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- In order to slow the spread of COVID-19 in New Jersey, the state has released a new app that will alert residents if they may have been exposed to someone with the virus.

“Governor Murphy and the state have taken COVID-19 seriously from the onset of this crisis which has saved lives and slowed the spread of the virus,” said Mayor Venezia. “The COVID Alert NJ app, will allow the State Health Department to notify residents immediately should they be exposed to the virus. This will ensure that they will know to self-quarantine and get tested so that they do not further spread the virus.”

Anyone who is 18 or older and resides or works in New Jersey may download the app. You will be notified if you have been within six feet of someone for at least ten minutes who has tested positive and who also uses the app. Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut and Delaware have also launched similar apps which will work in conjunction with one another.
