STA, 17 August 2020 - The Slovenian contact tracing app #OstaniZdrav (#StayWell) has been green-lit by relevant authorities and is already available to be installed in GooglePlay, said Public Administration Minister Boštjan Koritnik on Monday, announcing more details would be unveiled on Tuesday.
The minister moreover shared a link where the app can be installed free of charge on Android mobile devices.
More details are to follow tomorrow at the daily coronavirus briefing.
Government Covid-19 spokesman Jelko Kacin said more than a week ago that the app would be available in AppStore for users of devices running on the iOS mobile operating system by the end of August.
The app has been localised on the basis of the German Corona-Warn-App under the contract the government signed with developer RSteam. It has been deemed operational and tested by the Public Administration Ministry and the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ).
The app is voluntary, although it was initially planned that it would have to be installed by all persons with confirmed infections and those ordered to quarantine.
