Today Governor Walz unveiled a new volunteer contract tracing app (COVIDaware MN). The app tracks the users location and automatically notifies users if they have been exposed to COVID-19.
The app just increases the ability of the state to track compliance with Walz’s executive orders. As they have already admitted to using cell towers pings to track social distancing compliance.
Though the app claims you will be anonymous. You will not be to the ones that just gave themselves the power to fine or throw those who do not comply into jail for up to 90 days.
The app is currently voluntary, but once the number of cases fail to fall from the actions of Governor Walz’s “pause”. Talk will shift to the mandatory app usage for reopening to occur. Unless we say no to this infringement of our rights now!
The time is coming when you will not be able to shop, travel, or even work without this app. Whether it is made mandatory by the Walz Administration or through requirements from major corporations is yet to be seen. Either way the result is the same, less freedoms for the citizens of Minnesota.
Remember this and stand up for your rights now!
