Abstract

As economic activities and social interactions increase, attention is turning to how the contact tracing COVIDSafe app can support further easing of restrictions and prevent further outbreaks. Using data from the Melbourne Institute Taking the Pulse of the Nation survey, this Research Insight examines respondents' likelihood of downloading the COVIDSafe app, and explores ways in which uptake of the app can be increased.
