  1. No one should comply – Do not answer questions – Do not let them in your home – Listen to the words of the pushers of this program – "we will seek next steps for persons who do not comply" That means armed government at your door. It is a literal comply or die, because an "obstruction" charge will justify use of force. Warrants, arrests will happen, have happened. The App is a sick joke

  2. Same App in Australia that the government trying to force on the people, They just want to know my contacts on my phone and who I'm with.

  3. First, I would not consider anyone involved in this contact tracing app trustworthy. Second, anyone trustworthy that became involved with this app would then cease to be trustworthy.

  4. Why the COVID phone app is not a good idea.

    If you are out of your allocated zone, you will get fined.

    If you are not more than 5 feet from others, you will get fined.

    If you are on the ground floor of a building, and someone on the 44th floor has COVID19, you will be told to quarantine, as the app cannot tell what floor you are on. It only sees you as been in close proximity of an infected person.
