How WA Notify works with contact tracing

Contact tracing has been an effective public health intervention for decades. WA Notify supports this work anonymously. Here’s an example: If you test positive for COVID-19, public health officials may call and ask you to share your recent close contacts. You can’t name a stranger you sat near on a bus. If you both use WA Notify, the stranger from the bus can be anonymously alerted of the possible exposure and take steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to their friends and family. Just like hand washing and wearing a mask each help stop the spread of COVID-19, together they are more effective.

If you test positive and public health reaches out to you, they will ask if you are using WA Notify. If you are, they will generate a verification code and help you enter it into WA Notify. The code is not tied to your personal information. Public health has no way to know who will be notified by the app about exposure when you enter your code. The notification will not include any information about you. The more people who share their codes, the better we can prevent the spread of COVID-19.

To enable WA Notify on an iPhone, go to settings and enable Exposure Notifications. Android users download the WA Notify app at the Google Play store. Nearly 1.63 million Washingtonians are using WA Notify as of Jan. 4. Learn more at
