Should government trace your contacts?
A new house bill, H.R. 6666, introduced by Democrat Rep. Bobby Rush of Illinois would provide $1 billion in government grants to “conduct diagnostic testing for COVID-19,” and “to trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals, and to support the quarantine of such contacts.” Despite assurances from Rep. Rush that all testing and quarantining would be voluntary under the TRACE Act (COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone), many people are worried that the bill, if passed into law, would compromise individual privacy.

While the TRACE Act would not update cellphones with contact tracing apps as some have claimed, such apps are in development by Apple and Google. Klon Kitchen, a technology researcher at the Heritage Foundation, says these apps will be voluntary and won’t collect personal information.

Hybrid Homeschooling
