It’s important to have access to a phone while in quarantining abroad or in Canada. Should you have an emergency or fall ill, you need to be able to access a phone to call emergency services. Additionally, quarantine officers may contact you (by phone call) to check on your well-being, status of your quarantine, and COVID-19 test results. Many airports have cell provider booths , where you can purchase a local SIM card or phone. You can also obtain a Canadian phone number through FREE apps like Fongo.
The Fongo Mobile app can be useful for both Canadians who are travelling abroad and or visiting Canada. Fongo Mobile & Fongo World Edition come with a real Canadian phone number, letting you call Canada’s 10 Provinces for free. You also get unlimited text and media messaging to all Fongo users. The Fongo Mobile app will allow you to contact your family, work, and quarantine officers who may contact you over the phone to check on your well-being, status of your quarantine, and COVID-19 test results.
The app is available on the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, and Huawei AppGallery.
