I installed North Carolina’s SlowCOVIDNC virus exposure notification app and if you live in NC I encourage you to install it, too. You can get it from Apple App Store or Google Play.

So if you’ve been hesitating and wondering “I wonder what my computer programmer and security conscious friends think about this app?” The answer is I think you should install it.

I try harder than most people to avoid installing apps on my phone. I’m wary of apps causing problems either through incompetence or malicious intent. I think the risks in this case are low (much lower than any other random app, like a game or weather app) and the potential to reduce virus spread rate exists (and I barely even go out), so it’s worth it.
