WASHINGTON (WDVM) — D.C. city officials say over 190,000 residents have enrolled in the contact-tracing tool, DC CAN, on their smartphones. The tool was first launched last week.
As more and more people sign up, the notifications can assist city health officials and strengthen their contact tracing protocols that are already in place. Director of D.C. Department of Health, Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt, said, “We do have some of the most aggressive early adoption of the technology of any market so far, based on our conversations with Apple and Google.”
The District is still in a state of emergency, and Phase Two of the reopening plan, with the death toll at 644 residents.
