Canada's COVID Alert App
- The Government of Canada launched a national, voluntary app that will notify users if they may have been exposed to COVID-19. The app is available for free to Canadians and can be downloaded through the App or Google Play stores.
- The COVID Alert app incorporates exposure notification technology provided by Apple and Google and does not collect personally identifiable information.
- The more people using the COVID Alert app, the more effective this tool will be in helping limit the spread of COVID-19.
