Posted on 27 August 2020 by "T".

This week, Nevada has launched a free contact tracing mobile phone app called COVID Trace, designed to notify users of possible exposure to the novel coronavirus.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) of Nevada has developed the app through a collaboration between Apple and Google. Similar apps have been released earlier in Alabama and Virginia. The app would be considered an incredibly useful tool for a tourist state that has struggled to monitor and keep track of everyone, residents and tourists alike, that comes and goes out of the state since re-opening from lockdown.

Las Vegas casinos reopened on June 4, and have become a possible major hotbed for the transmission of the novel coronavirus, according to public health experts.
