If you haven't downloaded it already, now might be the time. The COVID Alert app Canada has put out is now available in two more provinces.

Justin Trudeau announced on Twitter that New Brunswick and Saskatchewan are now on the COVID Alert app.

That means people in those provinces can now be notified if they've been exposed to the virus.

Not only does the COVID Alert app keep you safe, but it’ll also slow the spread of the virus and help prevent future waves.

The Prime Minister said that New Brunswickers and Saskatchewanians have been doing their part to protect themselves, their loved ones and other Canadians.

Now they can also use the app as another protective tool.

Trudeau noted that it can help prevent any future waves of COVID-19.

"The more people who download it, the more useful it'll be," he said.

It's important to know that if you're in the two provinces and already have the app downloaded, you need to update it so that it'll work now.

COVID Alert is now being used in New Brunswick, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland & Labrador and Ontario.

If someone tests positive in one of those places, they'll get a code to put into the app and that will let others know that they've been exposed.
