COVID-19 Alert PA App

In addition to following state guidelines, such as wearing a mask in all businesses, washing hands frequently, and practicing social distancing, The Pennsylvania Department of Health has launched the COVID-19 Alert PA app as an effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Alert PA app uses the Exposure Notification System (ENS) by Apple and Google. Upon downloading the COVID-19 Alert PA app, the user has the option to receive notifications if they have potentially been exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19

Users can aid in fighting the spread of COVID-19 by opting to report to the Pennsylvania Department of Health through the app daily if they are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. In response, the app will provide information on what to do and allow the user to track their symptoms.

The app also provides users with the latest facts and figures on COVID-19 in Pennsylvania.

Additional Information

COVID-19 contact tracing efforts are ongoing and are critical to slowing the spread of the disease. The County has partnered with ACLAMO, Family Services of Montgomery County, Montgomery County OIC, and Visiting Nurses Association Community Services to help with contact tracing efforts.

Individuals who have been tested or identified as a direct contact of an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 and has received a call from any of our community partners may return the call to 610.278.5923 to find out their results or status. All information discussed on the call is strictly confidential and is only used to trace COVID-19 cases.
