CentrAlert to Release Free COVID-19 Mobile Notification App

CentrAlert, Inc. today announced the launch of their free Know NOW! App to help everyone gain access to essential COVID-19 information. Know NOW!, which is available for Apple and Android, seeks to streamline the various sources of COVID-19 updates and unify them in one easy-to-use mobile application.

“When COVID-19 first hit, there was so much that we didn’t know,” says CentrAlert CEO, Jeff Whattam. “But after going through four months of lockdowns, testing and social distancing, there almost seems to be too much information out there. With the country starting to re-open, conditions are prime for a second wave of infections and our Know NOW! App offers one simple interface to keep users safe and informed.”

Amid the chaos of COVID-19, it’s this very simplicity that is the strongest asset of Know NOW! Upon downloading the App, users just select their Current or Home Location to gain access to every core feature.

The first of these features is Governor alerts. With each state largely in control of their own response, there has been no single way to keep up with the most recent COVID-19 updates. However, Know NOW! shares real-time alerts from state Governors so that the user is always informed of the latest executive orders, restrictions, re-openings and more. These alerts, which are delivered in-App and as push notifications, are archived for five days with new updates taking precedence.

In addition to providing users with the most up-to-date state information, Know NOW! also offers access to a variety of interactive maps. Central to this functionality is the COVID-19 Test Site Map. With the virus hitting so swiftly, the average person had no idea how to find their nearest COVID-19 test site. The team behind Know NOW! has sought to remedy this issue by researching an ever-growing list of over 7,000 test sites across the country, with directions from your current location available for each. On top of this, Know NOW! offers two other map views with official state and national CDC statistics as well as hospital and urgent care locations.

As the year wears on, Know NOW! will unveil new features with uses far beyond COVID-19. “We don’t want people to think of Know NOW! exclusively as a tool for fighting COVID-19 – we want users to be able to get other information too,” says Whattam. “Later in 2020, we plan to release additional features for Know NOW!, such as weather and other emergency alerts. We will also offer public and private entities alike the opportunity to create their own alert groups for more specialized communication.”

The Know NOW! App is available absolutely free for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic on the App Store and Google Play. For more information, visit
