The Government of Canada’s COVID Alert exposure notification app is now available for your smartphone.
We encourage everyone at the College to download and use this important resource to limit the spread of COVID-19.
COVID Alert is designed to break the cycle of infection by letting people know of possible exposures before any symptoms appear.
The app uses Bluetooth to exchange random codes with nearby phones. Every day, it checks a list of random codes from people who tell the app they tested positive. You’ll get a notification if you’ve been near one of those codes in the past 14 days.
The app is safe and secure. It doesn’t use GPS to track your location, and doesn’t share information with others about you or the time you were near them.
