Contact tracing teams have different protocols in different places, but mostly they ask a couple of details that your local government will know in order to confirm your ID (for example your date of birth and address.) For the most part these are not particularly private, often available in public records—so you may not be giving a scammer anything they couldn't get some other way.

What a farce, you are priming people to become victims of social engineering. People are much better off if they maintain the habit of not sharing any personal information. It's as important as washing your hands.
