- A lawsuit filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California by two California residents accuses Google of exposing sensitive personal and medical data of Android users of its COVID-19 contact-tracing application, MediaPost reports. The lawsuit states Google violated individuals’ privacy under California law.
- Oregon's House of Representatives passed a bill to protect COVID-19-related personal health data, KTVZ reports. “This bill ensures that if you sign up for a (contract-tracing) app, you must explicitly provide consent for your health information to be collected. And your health data can only be used to provide you with (contact-tracing) services,” said Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum, who praised the bill’s passage.
