Virginia's covid-19 tracking app

I am due for a software update, but want to make sure it does not include an automatic acceptance/activation of the new Covid-19 tracking app. We are told it is a voluntary decision whether to have this installed on our phones and I do not want it.

Hello, GA2020. Help is here. It's important you install all updates on your device, to make sure it runs as it should. To clarify, what is the make and model of your phone? CourtneyM_VZW

On my Android moto z4, the latest update included an option to toggle (default OFF) a 'Use Exposure Notifications'.  You can ONLY turn this ON after downloading a 'participating app', maybe like Virginia's tracking app.  No tracking app was downloaded automatically with the system update for me.

...Just another VZW customer...trying to offer some assistance...
