Together, let's slow the spread of COVID-19
August 5, 2020
Together, let's limit the spread of COVID-19 and prevent future outbreaks. How? Download COVID Alert, a new nation-wide mobile app that let users know if they may have been exposed to COVID-19. The app, called COVID Alert, is now available to all Canadians for free download in the App Store and Google Play Store.
The app uses strong measures to protect the privacy and confidentiality of any data it collects. It does not track a user’s location or collect personally identifiable information. COVID Alert is another tool Canadians can use to help slow the spread of infection, prevent future outbreaks and protect our communities as we ease restrictions and restart the economy.
The development and launch of this tool is just another example of how the Government of Canada is working with provinces, territories, and other partners to protect the health of all Canadians. The more Canadians use it, the more useful it will be in protecting our loved ones and limiting further infection.
