State health officials hope a new cell phone app will be a valuable tool in the fight against COVID-19 by letting people know if they've been exposed to someone who recently tested positive for the virus.

Are you going to opt in to receive COVID-19 exposure notifications? Voting has closed for this poll — here are the results:

  • 54% voted no
  • 46% voted yes

Watch for another poll this Tuesday afternoon that we will follow and review starting at News5 at 4 p.m.

Coloradans began receiving push notifications for the app on Sunday. It's called Exposure Notification, and although the app will be automatically installed on iPhones, users will still have to opt-in. Android users will have to download the app manually.
