When you use Exposure Notifications on your iPhone, your phone can alert you if you've been exposed to COVID-19. If you live in a region that supports Exposure Notifications, your iPhone will use low-energy Bluetooth to exchange randomly-generated numbers with other participants when you're in close proximity for 15 minutes or more. These random numbers are anonymous and saved on your phone for 14 days. If someone you were near tests positive for COVID-19 and reports it in the system, you will receive an alert with instructions for testing. Some regions that participate in the Exposure Notifications program offer their own apps that work alongside Apple's Exposure Notifications service. If an app is required by your region, you will be prompted to download it while setting up Exposure Notifications on your iPhone. This wikiHow teaches you how to turn on Exposure Notifications on your iPhone, as well as how to report your own positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
Enabling Exposure Notifications
Open your iPhone's Settings Image titled Iphonesettingsappicon.png. It's the gray gear icon on your home screen or in your Utilities folder.
Exposure Notifications are not available in all regions.
Many regions who participate in the Exposure Notifications program do not require iPhone users to install a separate app, including California, Colorado, Maryland, New York, Virginia, and Washington. If an app is required by your region, you will be asked to install it during the setup process.
Some regions do offer iPhone apps even if they don't require them for use with Exposure Notifications. These apps may provide helpful information about COVID-19 in the region, including infection stats and vaccine info. To find out if your region has an official COVID-19 app, search for your region's name in the App Store.
As of February 2021, 27 U.S. States and 37 countries (including Canada, much of Europe, and Russia) are participating in the iPhone Exposure Notifications program.

9.Tap Turn On to confirm. You will see a message that says "Exposure Notifications are Enabled."
Tap Next to continue. The remaining steps vary depending on your region. For example, some regions request that you contribute (anonymous) data that can help their health department understand how people use the app.
You'll need to keep Bluetooth enabled for Exposure Notifications to work. If you turn off Bluetooth, your iPhone will not communicate with others you are near.
Android users can use their regions' official Exposure Notifications app to participate in the program. Your iPhone will communicate with Android users who are using their own apps the same way it does with other iPhones.
