Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich writes an op-ed about the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is not responding well to the COVID-19 outbreak. She said, "Right now, HIPAA is making it impossible to know whether you have been in contact with an infected person and, in turn, whether you may be infecting a high-risk loved one."
