The idea of contact-tracing teams is frightening

By Staff | Apr 15, 2020

To the editor:

The ambition of the newly formed Pine Island COVID-19 Task Force should be very alarming to Pine Island residents. To be considered dangerous for taking to the water, the docks or cooking outside is outrageous. Equally outrageous is contact tracing. Sure we expect it in Communist China, but to endorse their version of excessive surveillance with 180,000 contact-tracing teams is frightening. Is another self-appointed non-governmental organization assisting big brother really called for? Is this new organization a ROAR affiliation?
