COVID-19 Contact Tracing: Status, Challenges and Lessons Learned
Learn how contact tracing works, the inherent issues it raises, the implications for privacy and what we can learn from other countries’ experiences.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage, countries around the world have turned to contact tracing—tracking down people who may have been exposed to the virus—to mitigate the spread. In the U.S., states from New York to Utah to Alaska are hiring thousands of tracers or retraining state workers to take on tracing responsibilities. Together with widespread and speedy testing, tracing is seen as a critical weapon in our arsenal against the virus.
But how does tracing really work—and how effective is it? What challenges does it present? And what lessons can we apply from countries who have implemented tracing before us?

Key questions the program will address include:
What is contract tracing--and what are its inherent issues?
- How well is tracing working where it’s underway—and what can we learn from real-world case studies in LA County, New York and more?
- What are contact tracing apps—and how do they work?
- What is the implementation status of contact tracing apps in the United States?
- How have other countries employed contact tracing technologies? How effective have they been? And what challenges have arisen?
- What are the privacy implications of contact tracing technologies?
- What can we learn from other countries’ experiences about how to successfully manage the roll-out of contact tracing technologies, achieve widespread consumer buy-in and protect the data being collected?
