Colleges To Track Students With Faulty Software To Stem COVID & A $600M Flint Water Crisis Settlement

Play episode

On today’s show, Tom Lawrence, Daily Detroit’s resident Downriver Tech Guru and principal of Lawrence Systems, joins Jer to talk about some controversial location-tracking software being used by some local colleges as part of coronavirus safeguards. Tom’s always a good listen.

Also, the state on Thursday announced a $600 million settlement for civil litigation stemming from the Flint Water Crisis. Most of the money is targeted for minors who were at the most risk from lead contamination. We discuss.

And as always, we bring you the latest COVID-19 numbers from the state, and we discuss a new order in Washtenaw County designed to try and curb large public gatherings by college students. Good luck with that!
