Privacy and Ethics Recommendations for Computing Applications Developed to Mitigate COVID-19 [open pdf - 808KB]
From the Document: "Great strides over the last twenty years in leveraging data and computing in science, technology, and policy fuel excitement about harnessing data and computing technologies to mitigate the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic. [...] The potential costs associated with losses of privacy, disparity of access to technologies, and unfair resource allocation linked to uses of data-centric computing technologies must be weighed against the value and urgency in adopting promising new data-centric computational tools to fight the current pandemic. Adopting a series of best practices and standards will limit the risks that come with reliance on new technologies for responding to COVID-19, help defeat the current virus, and help provide insights and technology policy and infrastructure needed to identify and contain the rise of infectious disease threats needed to respond to future pandemics."
