Reference is to Printer's Date 4/8/20-S.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, by adding an appropriately numbered SECTION to read:

/ Section___. (A) The General Assembly finds that the liberties and constitutional rights of the citizens of South Carolina are guaranteed to them inviolate. Therefore, the Department of Health and Environmental Control may only utilize funds appropriated in this act to implement contact tracing in response to COVID-19 if every person involved in the contact tracing voluntarily agreed to be traced. Upon the request of any individual that agreed to be traced, the department must inform the person of the manner in which the person's information is being utilized. A person may not be penalized for refusing to be traced. If there is any conflict between this section and any other provision of this act, any other provision of law, or any other executive order, then this section shall control.

(B) For purposes of this section, 'contact tracing' means any mechanism, except where duly ordered by a court of law, by which the location or movement of persons is tracked, monitored, or recorded. /
