Privacy Best Practices in a Public Health Emergency

David Fraser at the Canadian Privacy Law Blog recently published an article about Privacy best practices in a pandemic public health emergency:
"Since the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, privacy questions have been in the headlines. International media reported stories from Asia about smartphones being used to enforce quarantine orders. In Ontario, Premier Ford suggested using telecom data to track social isolation compliance and more recently the Quebec police announced that it had arrested a woman in violation of a quarantine order by tracking her down via her cellphone."

"Companies are wondering what information they can require from employees about their health, diagnosis or risk factors, and what information they can provide to public health authorities if asked. Companies also have similar questions about customer information."
