The best way to prevent the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic illness is by avoiding your exposure to the virus. Clean your hands often, use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean your hands more frequently. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands or after being in the public. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. Stay home if you’re sick and take help from local health authorities and medical professionals. Make sure to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Properly dispose the used tissues in the trash, and immediately clean your hands with soap and water or a hand sanitizer. Wear a face mask if you are sick or if you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. Do not wear a face mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick. Issued in Public Interest with CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

COVID-19 contact tracing functionality will be made available on Android via Google Play Services

Tuesday, April 14, 2020

As Apple and Google are developing new contact tracing system using Bluetooth technology to control the spread of Coronavirus pandemic, we now hear from company representatives that Android will use Google Play Services to get contact tracing capabilities to the users without a full OS update. This should help older models that no longer receive OS updates gain the upcoming functionality from Google. The new feature will be available to all devices running Android's version 6.0 Marshmallow and newer.
