You’ve got virus!

Imagine this scenario: a sex partner notifies you and others on his “contact” list by email that he is infected with HIV and suggests you get tested. Apparently it would take too long to call everyone on the list, so email is the path he takes. Now your employer (who’s allowed to read your email) knows you’ve been exposed. But, hey look on the bright side, the email contains a link to information about your possible disease!

This is the approach being taken in Oregon and elsewhere using a system called inSPOT. Keep an eye on your inbox!
