Happy Civic Holiday
Stage 3 Re-Opening: Niagara Region
- Bluetooth technology exchanges signals with nearby phones
- If an individual has tested positive for COVID, their public health authority will issue them a one-time key to enter into the app
- If you have been in contact or within 2 metres of an infected person for over 15 minutes within the previous 14 days, your phone will alert you (as long as both phones have the app)
- If you have been exposed, you will receive instructions through the app on what you should do next
At this time, the app is only available on smartphones in Ontario. "COVID Alert" is a non-mandatory notification app and not a contact-tracing app. Officials have maintained that the app becomes more effective as more people download it.
Although the threat of COVID-19 has not disappeared, Niagara is allowed to resume normal activities (if individuals feel it is safe to do so) and support their local restaurants, attractions, and merchants. Remember to maintain physical distancing, wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitizer, wear a face covering when physical distancing is a challenge, and stay home if you are not feeling well or experiencing any of the symptoms related to COVID-19.
