The state of North Dakota is launching a new app to help slow the spread of Covid-19.
The app -- dubbed Care19 -- will help identify individuals who might have had contact with people testing positive for the virus, Gov. Doug Burgum said at a news conference Tuesday.
Users of Care19 will remain anonymous while the app traces their movements throughout the day. If users are found to be positive, they can provide their information to the North Dakota Department of Health, which will help with contact tracing.
The app was designed by ProudCrowd, the designers of a popular Bison Tracker app in North Dakota.
North Dakota remains one of a handful of US states with no stay-at-home order during the pandemic.
The state has 237 confirmed coronavirus cases, including four deaths.
