submitted by

Several Augsburg employees & students are involved with launching SafeDistance, a new app from HealthPartners & University of Minnesota.

This app has been featured on KARE-11, WCCO-CBS Minnesota, and Pioneer Press.

SafeDistance is a free, non-profit app and website that crowdsources symptom data to help detect, predict, and prevent the spread of COVID-19, all while assuring your privacy.
By using SafeDistance, you’ll receive:

* Personalized, social distancing recommendations
* Neighborhood-level COVID-19 risk map
* Assured privacy – no account required, you remain anonymous

The more people donate their data to SafeDistance, the more detailed the risk map will be – and the better University of Minnesota & HealthPartners researchers will be able to track the spread of the virus.
