Covid alert canada

The federal government has announced this morning COVID Alert for iOS and Android is now supported in New Brunswick and Saskatchewan.

The additional support by these two provinces means those with positive COVID-19 tests can report their diagnosis anonymously within the app, which utilizes the Exposure Notification framework from Apple and Google.

COVID Alert uses anonymous Bluetooth “handshakes” in the background on iPhone and Android smartphones, does not use GPS or share any other personal information. The app has been supported and approved by federal and provincial privacy commissioners.

With the launch of COVID Alert in New Brunswick and Saskatchewan, the debut joins Ontario and Newfoundland and Labrador in supporting the federal exposure notification app. The Canadian military has also been urged to download COVID Alert, which still works even if your local health authority doesn’t support it.
