Government shutting down COVID Alert app, sources say – CBC

COVID-19 exposure notification app may be terminated as early as this week, CBC News has confirmed

Jun 13, 2022

The federal government will be shutting down the COVID Alert app and may do so as early as this week, government sources have told CBC News.

The sources spoke to CBC News on the condition they not be named because they’re not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The Globe and Mail first reported the news.

The phone app, which was launched in the summer of 2020, is designed to alert users to possible COVID-19 exposure. Users who have tested positive for the virus use a one-time key on the app to report their diagnoses. Their phones then exchange codes with other phones that have the app installed, and notify those who have been within two metres of an infected person for 15 minutes or longer.

The federal government encouraged use of the app throughout the pandemic. The app doesn’t collect personal information such as locations, addresses and phone contacts.
