KSTP-TV: Minnesota unveils COVID-19 exposure notification app


EXCERPT: “Monday, the state of Minnesota unveiled a new piece of technology to help slow the spread of COVID-19 in the state. The new exposure notification application is now available for download. The app, COVIDaware MN, uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology to notify Minnesotans if they’ve been exposed to COVID-19. ‘We’re in the most challenging time of this pandemic, we’re also in the most hopeful time of the pandemic,’ Walz said, highlighting recent news regarding possible vaccines and now the development of the state’s new app. Once downloaded onto a phone, the app generates an anonymous key for that phone, which is changed every 10 to 20 minutes to protect the data.” FULL STORY: https://fluence-media.co/39aJh8A
