Call for Participation: COVID Control - A Johns Hopkins University Study

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

A group of us at Johns Hopkins University Schools of Public Health, Medicine and Engineering are conducting a Study that uses a simple App and Analytics Dashboard to identify potential emerging COVID-19 hotspots in the USA. The App is very simple to use—you just enter your body temperature and select, if applicable, the experience of other four symptoms linked to COVID-19. Entering the data will take less than 10 seconds. The Analytics Dashboard processes this information and anonymously produces a map of temperature and symptom anomalies. This map could help policy makers decide where medical resources may be focused, and where social distancing mandates may be needed or may be modified.


Please see the following article in the Johns Hopkins University HUB for additional details:


Our tool will work best when the App is used by a large number of people from around the country. Please help us increase the number of users by distributing this note to your social network.  


Please go to Google Play Store or Apple Store to download the app COVID Control – A Johns Hopkins University Study.  The website, analytics Dashboard and links to the Apps are at "".


Thank you for helping us track and defeat COVID-19!
