Commentary: “Contact Tracers” Will Be Fanning Out In Counties Authorized To Re-Open. BIG Brother Is Alive And Well In The Age Of Coronavirus.

How this information might be used, stored, or available beyond the prevention of disease is yet to be fully answered, and Civil libertarians and the Courts are sure to become involved.
