Together, let's limit the spread of COVID-19. COVID Alert is an additional tool to protect yourself and your loved ones.

COVID Alert helps us break the cycle of infection. The app can let other app users know of possible exposures before any symptoms appear.

That way, we can take care of ourselves and protect our communities.

Your privacy is protected

COVID Alert does not use GPS or track your location.

It has no way of knowing:

your location
your name or address
your phone's contacts
the health information of anyone you're near
Nobody will get any information about you or the time you were near them. Learn more about how COVID Alert protects your privacy.

How it works

The app uses Bluetooth to exchange random codes with nearby phones.
Every day, it checks a list of random codes from other users who tell the app they tested positive.
If you've been near a user who tested positive within the last 14 days, through these random codes, you'll get a notification.
Learn more about how it works.

More about how COVID Alert works

The app runs in the background and will not interrupt your activities.

Whenever you're near someone else with COVID Alert, both phones exchange random codes every 5 minutes.

The random codes change often and cannot be used to identify you.

Watch the video on how the COVID Alert app works.

What's an exposure?

The app estimates how near other app users are by the strength of Bluetooth signals.

An exposure depends on your contact with one or more COVID-19 cases over a 24-hour period.

An exposure is recorded if the contact is:

within 2 metres
for 15 minutes or longer

Getting a positive test

If a user is diagnosed with COVID-19, they can choose to upload the random codes their phone sent.

They can also enter details to help narrow down when they were likely most infectious. Those details tell the phone which random codes to upload. If the person chooses not to provide details, the app uploads the random codes from the last 14 days.

The random codes go into a central server. No other information is sent to the server.

Looking for exposures

Every day, whenever it has an Internet connection, your phone will get a list of the random codes from other app users who reported a diagnosis.

If it finds codes that match, the app notifies you that you've been exposed and explains what to do next.
