CovidReduce (Covidreduce.org) is a project at the University of Pittsburgh that aims to help the public to reduce personal infection risk of COVID-19 through education and tools. In the first part of this talk, we will present its four programs of Education, Mask Tester/Fit Monitor, Scenario Analysis, and Health Monitor. In the second part, we will focus on the last two programs and in particular the HealthDist app (healthdist.org/), which utilizes the context (e.g., weather conditions), location (e.g., crowded areas), and user's preferences to support safe mobility. HealthDist is the first app enabling contact avoidance in addition to contact tracing in a privacy preserving manner.
