A mental health approach to provide mobile phone users with situational awareness during a pandemic, with the goal of protecting and defending personal health.  Several individual risk reduction measures were developed to help users manage personal health. This user-centric and privacy-centric approach empowers users with tools, utilities and services to bolster the ability to manage complex health information, as well as privacy rights to personal information.  The two most important features are a social distance nudge, and a quarantine monitor.
