Today, Apple Inc. in partnership with the White House Coronavirus Task Force and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) – released an app and website that guides Americans through a series of questions about their health and exposure to determine if they should seek care for COVID-19 symptoms.
The tool provides CDC recommendations on the next steps including:
1. Guidance on social distancing and self-isolating
2. How to closely monitor symptoms
3. Recommendations on testing
4. When to contact a medical provider
This launch is a direct response to President Trump’s call for an all-of-America approach and will help Americans heed CDC guidelines and self-isolate to limit COVID-19 transmission.
2. Access the tool online at www.apple.com/covid19
Everyone has a role to play as we work together to stop the spread of COVID-19. Latest recommendations can be found at www.coronavirus.gov
