Vizio has added the CDC's Slow the Spread app to its SmartCast smart TV interface, allowing owners of its TVs to get more information about how to stay safe and informed about the coronavirus.
The app, recently created and provided by the Coronavirus Joint Task Force, provides advice on how people can help slow the spread of COVID-19. The Joint Task Force includes the agencies of the CDC, White House, Health & Human Services, & FEMA.
Slow the Spread highlights information that can help people recognize the symptoms and risks of the disease and provides recommended prevention measures to keep people healthy and safe.
The app is available to Vizio SmartCast TVs going back to 2016 and can be found in the SmartCast app row on the SmartCast Home page.
"Vizio made every effort to bring the CDC's Slow the Spread app to our platform as quickly as possible," says Mike O'Donnell, Senior Vice President, Platform Business. "We want our users to be safe, and we recognize the need for everyone to have the latest information quickly and easily. Our SmartCast platform is the perfect news and entertainment resource giving families that are gathered together at home easy access to this important information."
