California Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued an alert reminding consumers of their data privacy rights amid the COVID-19 public health emergency.

This included a specific reference to CCPA and the rights granted under it.

“As most of the nation adjusts to mandatory stay-at-home orders, consumers are spending more time than ever on their devices and conducting even more of their lives online.” said Attorney General Becerra.

“The reality is that COVID-19 is forcing families to adjust to a new way of living and connecting remotely. Whether it’s our children’s schooling, socializing with family and friends, or working remotely – we are turning to mobile phones and computers as a lifeline. With such a dependency on online connectivity, it is more important than ever for Californians to know their privacy rights.”
