The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE)’s Exposure Notification System is a new opt-in feature on your phone that notifies you if you may have been exposed to someone contagious with COVID-19. Using this service could result in receiving notifications days earlier than you would typically get notified by a contact tracer.
This tool is designed especially to protect workers in environments with direct customer or patient interactions. It is not always possible to contact trace to notify an employee if they have been exposed. By utilizing this service, a person could be informed they were exposed before they become contagious. By staying home, they can prevent transmission to coworkers, and prevent outbreaks and closures.
The more Coloradans who participate, the better we can contain this virus and slow its spread. That’s why we’re asking you to encourage your employees, your colleagues and your family and friends to enable the service on their phones.
You can learn more about how the service works at addyourphone.com, where you can also find a supporter toolkit with email templates, a one-page explanation, and social media posts you can use to encourage your fellow Coloradans to enable the service on their smartphones.
