Governor Hogan Announces MD COVID Alert Surpasses 1 Million Subscribers Marylanders Can Use MD COVID Alert to Receive Confidential COVID-19 Exposure Notifications on Smartphones

Governor Larry Hogan today announced that since the Maryland Department of Health launched MD COVID Alert last week, more than 1 million Marylanders have subscribed to the COVID-19 exposure notifications express system. MD COVID Alert complements traditional contact tracing efforts by using Bluetooth technology to notify a person if they may have been exposed to COVID-19 without compromising the identity or location of users.
