The Australian Government has launched a new voluntary coronavirus phone app - COVIDSafe. The app will assist health authorities to better manage any future COVID-19 outbreaks.
COVIDSafe uses mobile phone technology to speed up the manual process of finding people exposed to COVID-19. This means you will be contacted more quickly if you are at risk, and reduces the chance of passing the virus to your family, friends and other people in the community.
