COVID Safe Paths is the official app published by Path Check to aid in COVID-19 exposure notification and contract tracing in the following jurisdictions: Haiti and Puerto Rico.
Safe Paths can privately save the places you visit and store them on your phone. Select Healthcare Authorities in your area for information about COVID-19 near you, where available.
Coming Soon: Receive alerts from your local Healthcare Authority with information about potential exposure to COVID-19.
We are a global movement to develop free, open-source, privacy-by-design tools for residents, public health officials, and larger communities.
The Safe Paths team is composed of engineers, epidemiologists, data privacy evangelists, professors, and researchers, and is guided by mentors from the US Department of Health and Human Services, the World Health Organization, and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.
The Safe Paths program has spun out of initial privacy-first research conducted by MIT and TripleBlind, into a newly created non-profit called PathCheck, Inc (PCI), established with the initial purpose of supporting global rollout of the COVID Safe Paths app and Safe Places tools for contact tracers and healthcare authorities.
The goal of Safe Paths is to help enable the reemergence and re-opening of economies and communities. Through global partnerships, we are prepared to support public health officials everywhere in the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Incredibly useful tool to save lives
I had been waiting anxiously for this release on the App Store. Many of my friends had already downloaded this on Google Play. Here in Haiti, the app has been “zero-rated” and free to download. There is a lot of fake news about Covid here, so the “latest news” section with updated information about the virus is incredibly useful. The contact tracing function empowers people by letting them know if they’ve possibly come into contact with infected individuals. Thank you, MIT, Mayo Clinic, Digicel, OAS and others for bringing us this valuable tool!! It will inevitably save many Haitian lives! Mèsi anpil!!!!!
Thank you for this app. I was looking for many places where I could track my potential cross paths with a c-vid positive person. And I like that this app actually does care about my privacy and do not download my data.
Great concept and mission, but needs wider adoption to work
I love how the app is designed with privacy in mind and doesn’t track your location using GPS tech.
But the app needs more users for us to receive updates on whether someone we’ve been near is actively exhibiting COVID19 symptoms or not.
