Provinces aren’t using COVID Alert app properly or widely enough, says report


The federal government is urging the provinces to use its COVID Alert app properly and more widely after a new report said that only five per cent of those who have tested positive for the virus have been given the information required to register their results.

An interim report from a federal advisory council said that while the app has been downloaded more than 6.3 million times, only 20,000 people have entered the one-time key that lets the app know they have the virus.

The federal government launched the voluntary COVID Alert app in July. It’s designed to notify users when they have been exposed to another user that has tested positive for COVID-19.
