Hello John and Doves,
It's important to know what 'contact tracing' is and how it will affect us.
I think we can see how easily this can 'get out of control' and be abused.
Tens of thousands of people have already applied for these jobs in the different states. And there is a company created for processing applications and it has already received some 80,000 job applications! They are looking for "empathetic, compassionate" people to field these jobs.

Some people may apply just because they need a job. And it looks like minimal training - 20 hours - 8 hours hands on, 12 hours on line. Hardly 'extensive' training. So it looks like this 'training' will only be a small part of their actual job. The salary varies per state: the county of Ventura, for example is paying 26,000 to 35,800 annually.
I doubt these people are being hired for their 'empathy and compassion' when Dr. Redfield of the CDC said that contact tracing "would be an essential component in reopening the country...It's going to be critical...We can't afford to have multiple community outbreaks that can spiral up into sustained community transmission - is it is going to be VERY AGGRESSIVE." They will use cell phone data, surveillance footage, credit card transactions, neighbors, employers, friends, etc.https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article242122121.html

I can see this going badly, very badly.
And states are jumping on board with this!
