Step 3: Through Bluetooth, your phone and the phones around you with the SlowCOVIDNC app are working in the background (without draining your battery or data) to exchange these anonymous tokens every minutes that are few. As a total result, devices can remember how long they are near each other. Phones also record the Bluetooth signal strength of their exchanges in order to far estimate how apart they are.
Step 4: SlowCOVIDNC periodically downloads tokens from the server that have been uploaded from the devices of users who have tested positive. Your phone then uses its records of the signal duration and strength of exposures with those tokens to conduct a risk calculation and determine if you have met a threshold for notification.
Step 5: you may obtain your PIN from your local public health department and submit that into the app if you have tested positive for COVID-19. This voluntary and anonymous reporting notifies others who have downloaded the app and may have been in close contact with you in the last 14 days that they might be at risk.
