October 6, 2020 3:42 pm Patient Management Additional States Release COVID-19 Contact Tracing Apps New Jersey and New York have released contact tracing apps that residents can install on their mobile phones, similar to the apps from North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. New York’s app will also be used in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and Connecticut to enable information-sharing across state lines. SHARE News & Knowledge All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link https://www.cdc.gov/publichealthgateway/healthdirectories/index.html for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
