Download the new COVID app to help flatten the curve

October 7th, 2020

Our College nurses encourage everyone to download the COVID Alert app. Launched in Quebec on Monday, it is available for free on the App Store or on Google Play.

The app is useful because it:

  • notifies you if you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19;
  • refers you to the relevant information concerning the steps to follow after you receive the exposure notification;
  • informs other app users when they have been close to a person who has reported testing positive to COVID-19 through the app, anonymously and without sharing personal information.

The app does not

  • access, collect or archive your  or information on your health status;
  • use the GPS on your device and cannot determine your location or any other personal information.
