iPhone Exposure Notifications in California?

I turned on my iPhone's 'Exposure Notification' contact tracking last night and posted about it on Facebook. Two friends tried and were unable to turn it on. Have others in CA tried to turn contact tracking on?

I turned it on but haven't done anything with it. I thought it was a pilot test only available for folks associated with the University of California. I'm not sure other people are able to use it but I could be wrong.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Well, the video I posted is mine, but I’m not associated with Cal. I am running the iOS beta, so maybe that’s it.

[www.washingtonpost.com]

Here’s a phone alert you wouldn’t want to miss: “You have likely been exposed.”

The coronavirus surge is upon us, and your phone might be able to help. About 100 million Americans now have the ability to get pop-up notifications from local health authorities when they’ve personally spent time near someone who later tested positive for the coronavirus.

But exposure notifications only work if you and the people around you turn them on. Yes, you!
