The Operation Outbreak (OO) app uses Bluetooth to simulate the spread of a "virtual pathogen" through phones. Play an outbreak simulation with this app to learn how to stop the spread of disease by adopting preventive measures such as social distancing and mask wearing, answering quizzes about biology and public health, and working together as a team with the rest of the outbreak participants. You will need a code from a simulation organizer in order to play.
