Sickweather - local illness tracker, maps & alerts

By Sickweather Inc.

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


Sickweather is the largest illness crowdsourcing community of its kind - processing over 6 million reports of illness each month! As featured on the Today Show, Sickweather provides real-time alerts whenever you enter a 'sick zone'. Be alerted for Flu, Norovirus, Pink Eye, Whooping Cough, and 19 other illnesses!

Sickweather has also been honored among "100 Brilliant Companies" by Entrepreneur Magazine, "Top 5 Sites Crowdsourcing for Your Health" by George Washington University School of Public Health & Health Services, and has been recognized for identifying the peak week of flu season 15 weeks before the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC).

With Sickweather Groups you can follow, report illnesses, and post messages directly to the locations that matter most to you, such as schools, workplaces, restaurants, hospitals and more! Add our SickScore® widget to your Today Screen to see the threat level of contagious illness in your immediate area.

Unique to our Apple Watch app is a hand washing timer which runs for 20 seconds (as recommended by public health organizations) and uses Apple's Taptic Engine to let you know when you are done.

Sickweather uses a patent-pending process to track and map reports of illness from social media in addition to crowdsourcing directly from our user community. Reports are represented by blue "SICK" map markers at the local level -- tap them for more information of exactly when they were reported. Some viruses can survive on surfaces for up to 48 hours and can have a viral life cycle of 2 weeks, so we color-code more recent reports as RED within 1 day, ORANGE within 2 days, YELLOW within 1 week, and we include reports as old as 2 weeks in BLUE.

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Sickweather can be used with or without these services running, but to receive our real-time Sick Zone alerts, location services must be turned on. You can discontinue GPS services by simply turning off our Alerts from within our app settings using the Master Switch.

What's New in Version 3.7.1

Thank YOU for using Sickweather. Sickweather is the largest illness crowdsourcing community of its kind - processing over 6 million reports of illness each month!

With this release we are excited to announce the following new features:

• New! Private reports. You can now report illnesses to Sickweather privately. These reports will help your community by contributing to Sickweather's forecast, Sickscore, and what's trending now features but will not be visibile on the public maps, only to you. After reporting privately you'll see the report annotated with a special white sick cloud with a lock icon, indicating it's a private report and only visible by you.

• Minor bug fixes.

Love this app

As someone with several chronic diseases, & having to take 2 low dose shots of chemo each week for one of them, this app is so helpful. I only wish more people used it to get a more accurate read of illnesses in my community. This app could literally save the life of someone like me. Thank you for your important work as well as keeping it free.


Especially for people with kids, where illness tends to spread like crazy — this is super helpful. Would prefer to be able to tag SCHOOL rather than present location or home, because that's where kid illnesses spread. But still: super interesting idea. If enough people adopt it, or if health clinics start sharing data, this could be super useful!

Use this all the time

Sounds sad but I feel better when I see others in the area have the same thing because it makes sense than.
