“is anyone else getting these DC Covid exposure alerts?”, “how long after the potential exposure did they get it?”

Heidi sends the alert above on Saturday. Another reader writes:

“Dear PoPville,

If they received a notice from the DC exposure notification thing on their phone, how long after the potential exposure did they get it? I got a notification last night/early this morning for potential exposure 10 days ago.

So now my CDC recommended 10 days is up anyway since I’m vaccinated, but it doesn’t do much good if it takes nearly 2 weeks and you go on living your life. I’m fine, not going to waste time testing since it’s past the 10 days, but that’s ridiculous. I’m legitimately just curious if their system is just that bad at doing the one thing it’s supposed to do or if I was an anomaly.”
