Washington Exposure Notifications - WA Notify

The Washington Exposure Notifications app WA Notify is now available for all smartphone users across the state. The app works by exchanging random, anonymous codes/tokens to other nearby phones through bluetooth. If a user later notifies the app that they have tested positive for COVID-19, the app can then notify others that may have been in close range for a significant period of time through those tokens. At no point is any location data or personal information collected or shared. See the FAQs and Privacy pages for more information. The system is based on Google Apple Exposure Notifications technology.

  • On an iPhone: Go to Settings. Scroll to Exposure Notifications. Turn On Exposure Notifications. Select United States. Select Washington.
  • On an Android phone: Go to the Google Play Store. Download the WA Notify App.

New Safety Training Reports for Managers

Managers and supervisors have two new ways to view EH&S safety training records for all personnel in an organization code or who report to a manager. The Report by Orgcode will search across an entire department. Report by Manager searches for all individuals who report to that manager. Users still have the ability to create a Report by Individual. All report tools require a valid UWNetID.
