Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey announced two programs Monday to provide COVID-19 testing and symptom monitoring, as well as notification of exposure to the disease.

The programs – Testing for Alabama and Stay Safe Together – will be implemented by a coalition led by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) and UAB. The platforms will support public institutions of higher education to enhance safety on campus during the pandemic, and may later support businesses and other entities.

The initiative supported by $30 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) money, will target underserved areas and support the Alabama Department of Public Health in its testing of hot spots around Alabama.
