Hey all:

I found this very clear and didactic questionnaire intended for people
designing or evaluating contact tracers.  I thought it might be useful to
disseminate:
https://cpg.doc.ic.ac.uk/blog/evaluating-contact-tracing-apps-here-are-8-privacy-questions-we-think-you-should-ask/


This group needs scribes and multipliers more than opinions, but I'll limit
myself to one: +100 to Adrian's invitation to prioritize collaboration and
model consensus. I don't think our efforts will be of much use to any
public health authorities unless they are cohesive end-to-end.

I looking forward to discussing these topics with many of you across
various community calls and fora in the coming weeks. Thank you and be safe,
__juan
