Ethics and Privacy of Contact Tracing

Contact tracing is balancing protecting the health of your community while keeping medical information private. For example, you must tell contacts they have been exposed, but do so without sharing any confidential information about the person with COVID-19.

Many people are concerned about how their information🗂 may be used. They may not trust the government or may have had a negative experience 😓. Explain how their information is protected during contact tracing. Answer their questions about who can access it, what will be done with it, and how long it will be kept.
