My husband received an email from Medicare today, warning, uh, alerting him to the fact that he might be contacted by a Contact Tracer. Seriously? I wrote a post at the end of May about my objections to contract tracing, and at this stage of the virus’s run, I am even more against it.
I suspect this is a political decision because money has been spent and will continue to be spent to make us feel as if this kind of program is/will be worthwhile: lives will be saved! People will be better protected! It’s your patriotic duty to comply!
If we are contacted to meet with a Contact Tracer, we will both tell him or her to pound sand. (I just love this new phrase I’ve discovered.)
I have sacrificed so much time following guidelines that I believe are mostly worthless that this one is one too many. The virus is going to run its course, whether we like it or not.
The buck stops here.Published in
