In Jena, the connection of the system to the health office is already planned for beginning of 2021 has already taken place. The app is also already being used in committee meetings.

How does luca work?

luca has three interfaces: Operator, Guest and Health Department. As a guest, I register once in the app with my data. luca generates a QR code that changes every minute, which I can use to check into different locations of an operator. If I leave the location, I am automatically logged out again. If a case of infection occurs, all guests of the location who were there at a certain time are informed. At the same time, the health authorities are informed, which can then automatically access the data of the other guests. luca also offers a contact diary.

What happens with my data?

The generated data is encrypted decentrally. Only in the case of an infection, the data can be read by the health department and only by the health department. Organizers or operators do not have access to the personal data at any time.
