COVID Alert NJ anonymously alerts users if they have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. The app also will provide users with up-to-date information on New Jersey reopening news, key COVID-19 metrics and a user-friendly symptom tracking tool –  all while maintaining privacy and anonymity between users.

COVID Alert NJ was developed by the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDH). Montclair State students recently helped in the beta testing of the app.
