1. You can also choose to “Allow” your phone to turn on the COVID-19 Exposure Notification Services (ENS) and also “Allow” your phone to display notifications so that you also receive an alert that you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
2. COVID Alert NJ App is being made available by the New Jersey Department of Health (DOH) to complement New Jersey’s comprehensive COVID-19 contact tracing effort.
1. To be alerted if they have been in close contact with another app user who has tested positive for COVID-19 – even if that person is a stranger
2. To track their symptoms and get advice on what to do to protect themselves and others
3. To be able to anonymously warn other app users whom they were in close contact with, if they tested positive for COVID-19 – especially people they do not know or remember being in close contact with (e.g., during bus/train ride, at public places)
4. To monitor the latest information and statistics related to the COVID-19 pandemic
5. To reach NJ public health representatives and be connected with support services
For all this to work, all you have to do is push “Allow” COVID-19 Exposure Notification Services (ENS) on your phone within your App.
You can also choose to “Allow” your phone to turn on the COVID-19 Exposure Notification Services (ENS) and also “Allow” your phone to display notifications so that you also receive an alert that you have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. You can also turn off this functionality, at any time, in the Settings page of the App.
In the event you receive an Exposure Notification, you may read NJ DOH advice under Exposure Notification Information or get in touch with a public health representative.
It is important to note that COVID Alert NJ will never reveal the identity of any person using the app to other app users, and never reveals who has been diagnosed as positive for COVID-19.

Well Implemented and Clear
Aside from wanting the ability to get daily reminders to do the wellness screening, the app is simple, clean, and concise. I'm pretty proud of my State's ability to grasp technology and make things that make life better. Thank you and stay safe.
Special thanks to Governor Murphy, his administration and the developers of this app for putting together a system of alerting residence about this horrible virus for the new age. We can beat this virus, together.
Typo in intro
In the intro that comes up after downloading the app (I think it’s the first page) there’s a typo—it says identify when it should say identity.
