AlohaTrace is a collaborative effort between several public and private organizations in Hawaii to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 by crowdsourcing local data on positive cases, pending test results and those simply exhibiting various symptoms. Answer six anonymous, confidential questions once a day to help provide near real-time data to research organizations and Hawaii public health and government officials.
AlohaTrace is a community-driven data collection effort relying on Hawaii residents to contribute information focusing on their symptoms, physical location and movement in the community. We are encouraging users to submit information daily (or as frequently as possible) —whether they’re feeling well or unwell, so we can send near real-time data to research organizations and Hawaii public health and government officials.
AlohaTrace is an updated approach to contact tracing – a method proven to be successful in countries like South Korea, that provides information on who may have been infected, where they’ve been and who else they’ve been in contact with. While our privacy laws are much stricter in the US, an anonymous crowdsourced initiative like this can provide the same benefits.
