The governor said Monday that state officials will soon roll out a cell phone tracker designed to alert people when they’ve been near someone who tested positive. A person who tests positive would get an alert, allowing them to notify everyone — anonymously — who has been within six feet of them. The person can opt out of sending the message, and recipients would not be able to see who tested positive.
So let me get this straight. Our Governor is going to track us thru our cell phones? And this is to keep us safe from a virus that is no deadlier than the flu? And this tracking data is just for this? If you do contract Covid and you have violated the mandate, the data could show that. Does this mean that Uncle Ellison is going to be calling? What if you don’t contract Covid but defy Walz’s mandate? More than 10 people over for Thanksgiving? Ring… Ring.. this is your AG calling… If you think that is out of the realm of possibility, call Cimeron from the North Star Ranch.
Walz went on to say, it’s been “pretty successful” in other countries that have used the technology, and said it would be “totally anonymous” to avoid privacy concerns.
I can only assume that he is referring to communist or socialist countries where this technology has been used to track down and persecute anyone with a dissenting voice. But then doesn’t that track? Walz is all about socialism!
