COVID-19 Contact App (COCOA)

All members of OIST should install and setup the COVID-19 Contact App (COCOA)) from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare  on their smartphones or mobile device. This application allows you to track your contact with others both on and off campus and will alert you if you have had contact with potentially infected individuals, aiding in preventing the spread of the Corona Virus.

This application:

  • Is completely anonymous, as it does not identify you or the individuals you have contact with
  • Does not track your location
  • Deletes all data after 14 days

You can download the application from the App Store on Apple devices, or from the Google Play store on Android. OIST IT will push the application to all OIST managed iPhones, please setup the application. Please ensure your mobile device is running the latest iOS or Android operating system.

Please see the COVID-19 Contact App Guide (OIST login required) for assistance in downloading and setting up the application, along with an FAQ answering the most common questions regarding the application.
