MI COVID Alert
Working with Apple, Google, and SpringML, the app makes use of the exposure notification framework developed by the former two companies. Here’s how it works.
People who download and enable the app in Settings > Exposure Notifications and have been within six feet to another MI COVID Alert user for at least 15 minutes in the last 10 days will be notified with a push alert if that close contact tests positive for the virus.
The arrival of the app is timely as Michigan COVID cases have been recently spiking. On Monday MDHHS reported a two-day total of 9,010 cases and 62 deaths, with a seven day average of daily confirmed cases reaching 4,559. So far Michigan has recorded 804 total confirmed coronavirus cases and 7,640 deaths.
