- Ireland will launch a voluntary phone-tracking app next week to alert individuals if they have been in contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19, Reuters reports.
- Privacy groups in England said businesses have not received guidance on how to gather and store customer data they are required to collect as part of a 4 July reopening plan, and consumers have not been assured their data will be handled safely, the Guardian reports.
