    I like the concept. However, I received a notification. The dates that it gave, I was actually out of the state. So does that still apply? I'm confused on this part.

    I gave it a 3 only because of the concept. We need something like this. Obviously, no one will ever come up with a system that every person will be able to use the same way for example an 18 year old vs. a 69 year old person. Needing a verification code is not going to work specially now that most people test at home. Now if you develop at home test that show a code instead of a tiny red line when positive, then your idea might work better. Just a thought...

    So I absolutely love this!! However, I'm assuming it's true that you need to download an app specifically for the state you're in? I've traveled to both Colorado and Virginia and these states both have their own. Please advise me what I should do to keep using this cool service! :)

    I appreciate the effort in designing this app, but it may be necessary to rethink the approach. I stood in a windy line at a testing site for 4 hours when the positivity rate was over 25%. On average, 1/4 of the people around me were positive, but there was no alert. Then someone in my family tested positive--still no alert. I suspect there's not a critical mass of users for what's essentially a crowd-sourced tool, but the end result is high false negative rate.

    have never gotten a notification from it, not sure if this is a good sign (no contacts to trace near me) or a bad sign (not enough data to be useful)

    Probably a good health safety app of awareness. Thank You.

    used this at the beginning of the pandemic and never had an alert tell me that i was near any exposures. I'm a teacher, so it'd be nice if students also had this running so that we can quickly and easily see if we've been in close contact with students who might've been exposed. otherwise this app is useless.

    I contracted COVID and this app did nothing! When the app first came out, it gave the option for people to share when they were exposed and where the exposure occurred. At some point, this feature was stupidly removed. I was furious to find that out! Whoever it is that makes final decisions about modifying the app and oversees its maintenance has to be fired for their absurdly irresponsible and irrational decisions! This is NOT a good representation of California's decision-making. 🤬

    You could be exposed to COVID but the app won't tell you because no one reports it. I've had better luck getting a phone call from someone who says they had it than this app telling me I may have been exposed. What it's great at doing is telling you that your bluetooth is off and that's about it.

    This app was working for about a month, then, all it does is advise me to dowload it, even though it's already on my homepage, so when I download it again, it advises me that it's already imstalled & working, while in the same sentence, it asks if I want to UNINSTALL, which I may do, if the problem isn't corrected soon, because, otherwise, it's just a waste of my time & my storage space.

    I wasn't feeling well last week, so I checked the app to see if I may have been around anyone unwittingly that had tested positive while at my doctors office waiting to take a covid test just to be safe. There were no notifications. Then this morning I got a notification of a possible exposure from 10 DAYS AGO?!?! WHAT THE ACTUAL FRENCH TOAST?! Luckily I had already received my covid test saying that I was negative. But that is completely unacceptable.

    I submitted a positive home test and used another device to test if anything was reported which failed. I've tested positive a week and a half later and could not report another positive test.

    In California, you have to be exposed for a full 15mn to get a notification. That's so 2020. Wake up public health, BA2 is as contagious as measles. I appreciate the effort at privacy, but a better effort at plain science is also essential.

    When I showed positive on my rapid test I tried to do the right thing by reporting it on CA Notify. But I could not report it without (What was it? A verification code?) Of course, I didn't have the code, so I couldn't report that I had COVID. Ineffective and disappointing.

    I downloaded this app well over 6 months ago, two months ago I went to the hospital emergency room. Well there I was going to move to the other end of the emergency room waiting area, when they told me that area was all the covid patients waiting. I never got notice. So I don't think it really works. But it's a good idea but it just doesn't work.

    Never opted in to get a notification from this application that I never installed on my phone. As far as I'm concerned this is malware.

    I just tested positive and deleted the app. Pretty disappointing. I've had this app since it first became available and like others, NEVER received any notifications besides that my Bluetooth was off. I tested positive this week, opened the app to report my result only to find out that I couldn't report my at home test results, so everyone that I may have infected last week will not be getting notified like they should be. Good thought but a HUGE FLAW!!!

    To the developers: More marketing is needed to get a majority of Californians to use this app in order for it to work. I work with multiple schools, been around dozens of people who have tested positive, including my neighbor and I have gotten zero notifications during the surge of Jan 2022 where our county cases reached 6300 reported per day compared to the Jan 2021 surge with 2300 reported cases per day. I either consider myself lucky or this app is absurd. I choose the latter. Good intentions
