Get the Government of Canada Covid-19 app now!

On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) assessed COVID-19 as a pandemic. The Canadian government of Canada has been keeping Canadians informed with daily briefings from Prime Minister Trudeau and Canada's Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Theresa Tam. 

Covid-19 remains a serious threat to all Canadians. In response, the government of Canada has implemented an Emergency Order under the Quarantine Act (2005) that requires all travellers returning to Canada to self-isolate for 14 days.  

In addition, the government has launched Canada Covid-19, an app to keep Canadians informed and safe about on-going issues related to the virus. The app can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play and a web version is also available for those who do not have access to a smartphone. 

The app is a one-stop-shop for information on Covid-19, in Canada. It includes an up-to-date map of infection statistics across the country, current updates from the government, information on a number of relevant topics, and a self-assessment tool.
