Bloomfield, NJ – To slow the spread of COVID-19 in New Jersey, the state has released a new app that alerts residents if they are exposed to the virus. The Bloomfield Health Department is advising residents to download the app to stay alert as soon as possible.
“Governor Murphy and the state have taken COVID-19 seriously since the beginning of the crisis, saving lives and slowing the spread of the virus,” said Mayor Venezia. “The COVID Alert NJ app allows the state Department of Health to notify residents as soon as it is infected. This ensures that they are aware of self-restraint and that they are tested to prevent further spread of the virus. ”
