HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - This week, the Muthaship goes high-tech!

We’re learning about two new apps that’ll soon be rolled out by the state to boost contact tracing efforts. One uses GPS to track where you’ve been, and the other details possible close contacts, to make contact tracing faster.
