    People who download and enable the app in Settings> Exposure Notifications and have been within six feet of another MI COVID Alert user for at least 15 minutes in the past 10 days, they will be notified with a push alert if the close contact is positive for the virus.

    The privacy policy notes that the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services does not collect or process personal data from the app. If a user receives a push notification stating that they may have been exposed, MDHHS may ask the virtual agent to ask the app user for their name and phone number. The app will not collect, track or store your location, GPS information or personal information.
