In late February of 2020, we began with an idea for a way to take advantage of how much we use our mobile phones to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, which was just starting to circulate in the United States. The term "contact tracing" became more and more prevalent as new COVID-19 patients were being asked to remember who they came in contact with so that potentially infected individuals could self-quarantine and avoid spreading the virus further. We decided to try our hand at building a mobile, privacy-preserving solution for contact-tracing in which we could use our phones to anonymously log our close contact with other people so that individuals can be notified early of potential COVID-19 exposures. With the country just beginning to re-open, we're excited to do our part in sharing TraceX with the community of free-lance developers, health agencies, and tech companies working on digital contact tracing systems. Social distancing is needed now more than ever, and we hope that these digital contact tracing can help communities stay safe against the spread of COVID-19 without having to worry about giving up private information.
