CA Privacy Groups Support, If Amended, Contact Tracing Privacy Legislation

ACLU, Common Sense, CFA, Consumer Reports, EFF, and Privacy Rights Clearinghouse take a support if amended position on AB 1782. This legislation would help protect the privacy of people in California whose personal information is processed by technology-assisted contact tracing for purposes of containing the COVID19 outbreak. The groups would be pleased to support AB 1782 if amended to more fully protect the people’s privacy interests in COVID-related information, as set forth in the attached letter.
