Survey Reveals People Willing to Share Their COVID-19 Status Through Apps

CONWAY, Ark., June 25, 2020– Metova, a leading provider of custom software solutions for mobile, web, connected home and car, and Internet of Things (IoT) for the private and public sector today announced the results of a new survey of over 2000 people in the United States on contact tracing and exposure notification apps use in the fight against COVID-19. Notably, the survey found 77% of people would want to be notified via their mobile phone if someone they recently came in contact with tested positive for COVID-19, and 85% would be willing to anonymously share a positive COVID-19 status for the greater good.

Other survey findings include 86% would be more likely to use a mobile app for anonymous exposure notification if the community they lived in was experiencing a spike in COVID-19, while 76% believe notifying those who have come into contact with someone infected with COVID-19 could slow the spread of the virus. Also, a majority would most trust federal or state governments, followed by local hospitals and health systems, as the provider of the mobile apps to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. For more details on the survey findings, please see the bullet point summary below.
