Require contract tracing enrollment?

I'm not finding any discussion on whether we will be able to force enrollment on mobile devices of bluetooth based contact tracing, pending release by Apple and Google.

Are we expecting this to be a Meraki feature?

Kind of a big deal

Re: Require contract tracing enrollment?

I don't think that many (any?) Governments will take up the contact tracking solution by Apple/Google.

 

Neither will share GPS location.  They only use Bluetooth to detect you have been near someone else, and the Apple solution doesn't work properly once the device is in sleep mode.

Without GPS you can't determine where an infected person has been.

 

 

On the whole - I think this has nothing to do with Meraki.
