The opt-out feature is not available for the SMS service. The SMS notification will only be sent to individuals in settings which pose a higher risk of transmission, such as dining places and gyms where people do not wear masks for extended periods of time. We seek everyone’s cooperation to monitor your health closely as a precaution if you do receive the SMS notification, as it means you might have had some contact with an individual that had tested positive for COVID-19. The nature of the contact was likely not sustained enough for MOH to have contacted you, but it would be good for you to monitor your health, on your own, just in case. This will help control the spread of COVID-19, and keep our loved ones safe.
