California Covid Notify

UCLA students, staff and faculty can now join peers at UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Riverside, UC San Diego, UC San Francisco and UC Santa Barbara in a state of California pilot of CA COVID Notify, an innovative technology that uses the privacy-preserving Exposure Notifications system jointly created by Google and Apple.

Participation is voluntary and strongly encouraged. Personal privacy is a paramount feature. The more users who are involved, the more effective CA COVID Notify will be.
