Series of cellphones showing COVID Alert app features

This Version Posted: March 29, 2021

Download the COVID Alert app to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This free, easy-to-use app will:

  • Notify you if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19 (even before you have symptoms)
  • Offer advice on what to do next
  • Let others who have been in close contact with you know if you test positive for the virus (without sharing personal information).

The app does not collect personal information or health data, and does not know or track the location, name, address, or contacts of any user.

The more people who download COVID Alert, the more effective it is (as of late March 2021, 6.4 million Canadians had downloaded the free app). COVID Alert can reduce the spread of COVID-19 by more quickly identifying potential new cases and contacts.
