Willingness of Canadians to use a contact tracing application / by Nicole Aitken, Martin Turcotte and Fei-Ju Yang.: CS45-28/1-2020-60E-PDF

"With the loosening of COVID-19 restriction measures, public health authorities and governments are reflecting on additional solutions to mitigate the spread of the virus. One way to achieve that goal in communities is to use contact tracing applications, as a complement to current manual contact tracing efforts by health authorities. Most of these applications use smartphone Bluetooth technology to check whether an individual was in close proximity to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 via randomly generated, anonymous codes. These applications can notify users who have had potential contact with individuals who have the virus and can provide instructions on how to get tested and guidance on whether they should self-isolate"--Page [3].
