Health Secretary: Technology Can Help Mitigate Spread of COVID-19, Add Your Phone to the Fight

By: Dr. Rachel L. Levine, Secretary of Health for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania

Technology connects us to resources and plays a powerful role in our lives. And at no time is technology more important than during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pennsylvanians listen to our press briefings, gather data from our enhanced statewide and early warning monitoring dashboards, and follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the most up-to-date information.

Still, COVID-19 continues to impact our state. Nearly 142,885 Pennsylvanians have been diagnosed with COVID-19 so far, and we are still seeing cases increase each day.

It is upon each of us to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Here in Pennsylvania, we are adding another tool in the toolbox residents can use to protect themselves and their loved ones: COVID Alert PA, an app that uses Bluetooth technology to notify you of a potential COVID-19 exposure.
