Covid Tracking App

A new phone app designed to alert people about possible exposure to COVID-19 is a big hit so far. Colorado COVID-19 advisor Sarah Tuneburg says over half-a-million people have enabled notifications for the app since Sunday. The app uses Bluetooth to share tokens with other phones that have the app. If a user tests positive for COVID-19, they're given a link from public health professionals to notify other people they may have exposed. A user's private information is never accessed at any time.

Mayor Nick Gradisar put the 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. curfew in place yesterday in hopes of keeping coronavirus from spreading. Violators could get a fine and/or time in jail if convicted.
