Why are we sharing where they have visited? We’re not asking for names just dates and times of the places they have been. That’s not a privacy issue. Especially being a pandemic. This is so easily spread it’s imperative that we know where to go and not go. If they went to Walmart then Walmart employees need to be tested. Or Publix produce. Or a drs office. We need to know where we could have been exposed.
