  • Patch Lady – 13.7 adds covid notifications

    Posted on September 2nd, 2020 at 17:41 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    The Apple 13.7 iOS update adds Covid-19 contract tracing BUT only if your location and health department has enabled it.  I know Virginia has one already enabled.  So does Australia.  I’ve read that North Dakota, Wyoming, Alabama, Nevada and Arizona either have it now or will soon.  Where I live in California it’s not enabled at this time (or at least not in my County).

    So what do you think of bluetooth enabled contact tracing?

    Just a kind reminder, remember that IF you get any sort of communication about Covid-19 tracking they WILL NOT ask for a credit card number or any other personal identity questions that would lead to identity theft.
