The IAPP created an infographic outlining the privacy-related questions surrounding COVID-19 testing and health monitoring. As economies reopen, the scope and scale of health data collection, use and sharing will only increase. Employers and businesses are conducting testing, temperature checks and health screenings. This data collection raises novel privacy issues because of its scale, the non-traditional methods and reasons for its collection, and the benefits and risks to sharing the data widely. If you are collecting or controlling this data, these are questions worth asking.
