Covid-19: New S-alerta.pt/CIDADAO App

The Regional Directorate of Health (DRS) issued a statement this evening saying that those who are “Covid-19 positive,  or have been in contact with a positive case in the Autonomous Region of Madeira should use the S-alerta.pt/CIDADAO app to monitor their situation, and therefore ignore all SMS messages sent by the Ministry of Health during their period of isolation or quarantine.” Therefore allowing people to take a much more active and responsible role during their confinement. 

The https://s-alerta.pt/CIDADAO/ application through IASAÚDE and DRS, sends daily informative messages to those who are positive and those who have been in contact with a positive case, and the DRS stress that these messages should be adhered to at all times. 

Through the new electronic platform, https://s-alerta.pt/CIDADAO/, citizens can access information about the new isolation rules, clarify any doubts, request declarations and certificates related to COVID-19 in a simple and hassle-free way. 

The platform which came into force on the 7th of January, is available to all citizens, but some of its features are only reserved for users with a positive result and/or risk contacts, upon receipt of a message which includes a “PIN” (in the case of positive cases) code.
