SlowCOVIDNC App available to now to all NC residents

Beaufort County Community College is encouraging all students, employees and area residents to download the new SlowCOVIDNC app. This app will help residents know if they have been in contact with someone who was sick, getting us all one step closer to being able to resume more in-person functions. The app was developed by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services.

It’s easy. All you have to do is download SlowCOVIDNC and you can help slow the spread of COVID-19. Download the SlowCOVIDNC Exposure Notification app, enable your Bluetooth and Exposure Notification settings, and be notified if you have been in close contact with someone who has shared a positive COVID-19 test result in the app.

Once you opt-in to the notification system, you can also anonymously share a positive COVID-19 test result in the app. SlowCOVIDNC protects your identity and privacy while empowering you to protect yourself, your family, and your community.
