How it


Protect your


COVID Defense is Louisiana’s free, easy-to-use phone app that gives us the information we need to fight COVID-19, without compromising your privacy.

You will get an alert if you were in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. Knowing about a potential exposure allows you to self-quarantine immediately, get tested and reduce the potential exposure risk to your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and others.

More privacy protection

than Google, Alexa, and most apps.

The app does not require personal info to download or use. If you are exposed, you may choose to share your contact info to receive important messages.

Your location will

never be tracked.

Bluetooth anonymously exchanges a secure code with other phones to record that they were near, but doesn’t track or record location.

You can opt out


COVID Defense is entirely voluntary, and you can enable or disable it at any time. It’s a community-driven effort.

Opt in anonymously

Once you opt-in, the Exposure Notification System will generate an anonymous token for your device. To help ensure these anonymous tokens can’t be used to identify you or your location, they change every 10-20 minutes.

Get notified if exposed

On a daily basis, your phone downloads a list of all the anonymous tokens associated with positive COVID-19 cases and checks them against the list of anonymous tokens it has encountered in the last 14 days. If there’s a match, the app will notify you with further instructions on how to keep you and the people around you safe.
