Description

Let your smartphone notify you of potential exposure to COVID-19—using fully anonymous Bluetooth signals—and help stop the spread of coronavirus throughout the state Arizona.

NEW Vaccine Support: In a single tap, you can easily access the most up-to-date and reliable information on how to get a vaccine within your chosen community.

Get peace of mind and start rebuilding trust in your community with just one small step: install this free app, released in partnership with the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS).

Once you opt-in and enable exposure notifications on your phone, Covid Watch starts working immediately to detect if you come into close proximity with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. The app is completely anonymous and works in the background without ever needing to know your location or personal information. It’s simple, safe, and secure.

The more people who download the app, the more effective we can be. We have now extended support statewide, so encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to install Covid Watch today. Together, we can slow the spread of COVID-19.

great app

very convenient app for knowing the exposures you have been around but i wish they would not have gotten rid of the exposure details. They should re-add the window where you can see the exposure lengthens as well as the risk level .

Needs Improvement

I love the concept of this app, but I don’t think it was ready for release. To begin with, it is very unclear what the risk level ranking is out of (10?), as well as what that actually means. Each time I have been exposed it’s been ranked as a “6” with no further information. That seems like a high risk level, and yet no suggestions for next steps were made available as promised. Is 6 actually quite low? Friends who have had the same exposure times have much lower risk levels. Why is mine so high?
Additionally, the notifications are very confusing. I got a notification on Sunday (8/31) that I had had no exposures during the week. Then on Monday night (9/1) I got an alert that I had been exposed... on 8/27 and 8/28. Today I got another notification for an exposure on 8/28. I am wary of these alerts because they all look exactly the same (risk level and time exposed). Are they accurate? Is it a bug? The time exposed seems inaccurate as well. For all three of my “exposures” the times are listed as: “0min, 0min, 3min, 0min” in that exact order. My friends have the same for different supposed exposures on different dates. This app needs more information and more clarity.

Can’t report; confusing setup

First of all, I had no idea AZ had this - have never heard a peep about it, and the last time I checked, AZ was not on the list. I discovered it when I was poking around the exposure notification settings on my phone. Without participants, this isn’t very useful, so AZ should be talking this up every opportunity! Including having the governor mention it in his pressers, as well as other leaders like school superintendents.

Second, setup was confusing. The Settings app says my region (Arizona) has an app and directs me to a list of apps on the App Store, where this one is *not* included. I had to find it by doing a general search, and then it doesn’t say explicitly in the description that it relies on the Apple/Google system, which I wanted to be sure because otherwise I likely wouldn’t use it for privacy reasons. I couldn’t confirm it until I got it installed and saw the integration. Get the app properly listed on the App Store list, and make the Apple connection clear in the app description.

Finally, I can’t tell the app that there’s been a positive diagnosis. Fortunately, I don’t need to, but without that, the value is significantly reduced. Why is this not included? And who in my area (Phoenix/Scottsdale) can report? Anyone?

Hello, currently, we have two active regions, the University of Arizona (UA) and Northern Arizona University (NAU). We are currently in the process of working with the State of Arizona so the app can be fully used by everyone in the State!
