Big Brother State of Vermont has app to ‘monitor” tourists- VPR

Vermont, the Beckoning Country, may soon need a new tourism slogan: “Vermont: We’re Watching You.”

"The state wants to stay in touch with travelers to Vermont using a mobile app. But it’s been unclear if it’s mandatory for visitors to register. As the Health Commissioner says, “it’s meant to be helpful.” The state uses a product called the SARA Alert app to monitor people who may have been exposed to the new coronavirus. The app does not track you with GPS data on your phone, but it allows you to register with health authorities and would assist in contact tracing."
