Web Conference: Leveraging Location Data for Public Health and COVID-19 Response Efforts

Original broadcast date: February 9, 2021

What are reasonable expectations of privacy during a public health crisis? Should there be limits on data collection and sharing? Are people willing to sacrifice aspects of their privacy in order to save lives or allow for economic reopening? Technology companies have been in the media spotlight for the past two years. Now the tenor of some of The New York Times and Wall Street Journal coverage has shifted. What happens when location technology becomes a critical component of the government public health crisis response? Our panel brings together privacy lawyers, policy experts and a consumer technologist to discuss finding the right balance between privacy and using location technology to protect public health.
