UC Berkeley will be participating in a pilot of California COVID Notify, a smartphone-based COVID-19 exposure notification system from the State of California. It uses the Exposure Notifications System built by Google and Apple to alert you when you’ve been exposed to COVID-19. It will quickly notify you if you’ve likely been exposed, allowing you to seek medical attention and reduce risk for your loved ones.
The technology will launch at UC Berkeley on Monday, Nov. 16. Berkeley will join several other UCs in piloting the technology on behalf of the state of California. Members of the campus community are invited to ask questions about the technology in advance of the launch. Campus privacy, health and student affairs leaders will be answering questions on the UC Berkeley subReddit on Thursday, Nov. 12 at 4 p.m.
