The COVID Alert app is now active in Manitoba. This app exchanges random codes with nearby phones to determine if you may have been exposed to #COVID19. It is private, safe, and secure! Learn more.
Together, let’s limit the spread of COVID-19 and prevent future outbreaks.
COVID Alert helps us break the cycle of infection. The app can let people 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
- your health information
- 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 people who tell the app they tested positive.
- If you’ve been near one of those codes in the past 14 days, you’ll get a notification.
