PUBLIC HEALTH SYSTEM
PUBLIC SERVICES AND EMPLOYEES
Whether or not I exhibit symptoms, I download the OUIII or Check4me mobile apps. I want to help the public health system to reach me if I have crossed paths with someone who has tested positive for COVID or presents symptoms and could be contagious. I enter some information anonymously, including my age group and whether I live alone or with others. I agree to have my location pinpointed ONLY in some public areas. Three weeks later, I receive a notification to call the public health system because I had close contact the previous week with a person who tested positive. I am over 65 years old and therefore part of a vulnerable demographic. If I live alone, public health will ask me to send an update on my status every three days. If I fail to provide regular updates on my status, public health will launch an inquiry based on my most recent location.
I am a health professional and I receive lab results indicating my patient is COVID positive. I provide him with a confidential (secret) code and he enters it into the mobile app to confirm his consent. I then go to the management console on my computer and enter the same confidential code, which enables me to see the list of profiles of people my patient has encountered in certain public places. If the profiles of said people show they are at risk (for example, they have medical preconditions) I send those people a notification warning them of the risk, along with a telephone number to reach us so we can confer. Alternatively, I send them instructions by notification with a link to the appropriate health web site.
I am manager for a business or a public service. One of my employees tells me that he is COVID positive. I provide him his confidential (secret) code and he enters it in the mobile app to confirm his consent. I then go to the management console on my computer and enter the same confidential code, which enables me to find out how many employees have come into contact with said employee. I then send a notification to these people, asking them to call me.
If I am the one responsible for public safety in my area. I will receive alerts from people living alone who haven’t responded for a period of time, and I will be able to go through the necessary channels to check on their status.
