The Exposure Notification Privacy Act relates to automated contact tracing tools that are currently being developed by companies ranging from Apple and Google to PricewaterhouseCoopers and Juniper Networks.
Apple and Google have created software that developers and public health agencies can build into contact tracing apps.
Britain, France and Singapore are working on mobile tracing systems that aren’t based on the Apple-Google standard.
“People must feel confident they can safely choose to participate in this important public health work,” he said.
“This bill will strengthen people’s confidence in decentralized exposure notification services – a technology with an important role to play supporting manual contact tracing – while protecting users’ privacy,” Lazowska said.
