ABTraceTogether App Launched

Lisa Cai Community, COVID-19, Daily Life, Newcomer Information, Updates

It is very important to pinpoint and isolate positive COVID-19 cases when we strive to prevent the spread of the virus. To achieve this, the government of Alberta has recently launched ABTraceTogether, a mobile contact tracing app that helps to let you know if you’ve been exposed to COVID-19.

The more Albertans who download and use the app, the faster we can reopen the economy! Download ABTraceTogether on App Store or Google Play and use it today!

ABTraceTogether works with the Bluetooth on your cell phone while recording other app users you’ve been in close contact with. If you’re exposed to COVID-19, Alberta Health Services will inform you and tell you what you should do next. If you get COVID-19, you can choose to provide your app record so that others who had close contact with you can be informed.
