Rhode Island is using a mobile app developed by Salesforce: "It also is compliant with applicable privacy laws, including the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)."

And they did it for free: "Salesforce has agreed to a six-month contract to set up and provide support for the program and app for free."

So, subby, feel free to shiat on other states -- but leave Rhody alone.

Russ1642: You're really asking a lot if you want people to suddenly be ok with an app whose sole purpose is to track your every move and invade your privacy because it's 'good for you'. And the very LAST people I trust with securing an app are government contractors on a tight deadline.


Its OK, it's probably secured with blockchain

I won't leave Rhody alone, you just got yanked off the "safe travel" list for Massachusetts.

Fair point. We should take the lumps when we get shiat wrong. (Though I stand by my initial point that RI wasn't "worried app development doesn't cost enough, or steal enough data" as the headline stated.)

What is happening down there with your case counts?

I can only guess. Probably the idiots who came to our beaches without masks. Or the bars that didn't install Plexiglas guards for their staff and now have to shut down at 11 p.m. because of it.


Well worst comes to worst we can blame Curt Shilling for souring Rhode Island on any software developers. 

Be safe my friend!
