Apple coronavirus COVID-19 app connects users with guidance from Centers for Disease Control
Apple launches tools to connect users with COVID-19 guidance from Centers for Disease Control. Apple on Friday launched new tools to connect users with information from health authorities about the ongoing coronavirus epidemic. The company said the tools will ask users "a series of questions around risk factors, recent exposure and symptoms for themselves or a loved one" and will offer "CDC recommendations on next steps, including guidance on social distancing and self-isolating, how to closely monitor symptoms, whether or not a test is recommended at this time, and when to contact a medical provider." They were created in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the White House Coronavirus Task Force and FEMA.
