State Launches COVID Alert App

(Honesdale, September 25, 2020)…Wayne Memorial Hospital administrators are urging the public to check out a new, free, mobile app from the Pennsylvania Department of Health that can detect if you have been in close contact with another user who later tested positive for COVID-19. The app, COVID ALERT PA,  will send a notification to your phone or other smart device called a “COVID-19 Exposure Alert.” If you tap on the notification, you will be given public health guidance on what to do next. It is designed to be completely anonymous. COVID ALERT PA is available from Apple and Google Play. Click here for more information:
