COVID Alert: Building a COVID-19 exposure notification service

04/11/2020 14.15 - 14.55

FWD50 in the MixChannel 5Presentation

Join the CDS team as we discuss how we used the guiding principles of availability, accessibility, awareness, understanding and trust to build COVID Alert, the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 exposure notification service.
CDS will cover how we used three multidisciplinary teams to build the multi-region service in 45 days. COVID Alert lets users know if they may have been exposed to COVID-19 before they are showing symptoms, allowing them to take action and help slow the spread of the virus.
