Dear Friend,

In August, the Commonwealth of Virginia launched the COVIDWISE app to help contain the coronavirus. The Commonwealth partnered with Apple and Google to develop this application, which will notify users if they come in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 while protecting their privacy.

The COVIDWISE App uses Bluetooth technology instead of GPS location data or personal information to notify users if they may have been exposed. This technology ensures that users’ information remains safe and anonymous while they use this application. When users receive notifications about exposure, the application provides several options, such as contacting a primary care physician or local health department, monitoring symptoms, and finding nearby test locations.

While using this app is completely voluntary, Governor Northam recommends downloading it to keep yourself and our community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. Doing so can help slow the spread of COVID-19 so we can overcome this public health emergency. 

Please know that we stand ready to help our community during this time of need. For resources to help you and your family navigate through COVID-19, please visit our website. If you have any questions, reach out to our offices via the phone numbers below.

Sincerely,
