Science and Innovation chiefs support the COVIDSafe app

Thursday, 7 May 2020

To protect the community and help small business reopen sooner, the Chief Scientist for South Australia Professor Caroline McMillen and South Australia’s Chief Entrepreneur Jim Whalley are urging South Australians to download and activate the COVIDSafe app.

The COVIDSafe app works by alerting anyone who may have been exposed to the deadly COVID-19 disease, to take immediate precautions. The app is safe to use and does not reveal the identities of anyone with COVID-19.
While many South Australians have already activated the app, it is vital that everyone that can download it does so to trace the virus quickly and keep the community safe.
