We are fighting, not just for New Yorkers, but for ALL Americans! If Quarantine Facilities can happen in New York, they can happen everywhere. If we win this lawsuit, citizens across the United States will win.
The citizens’ group, Uniting NYS, has teamed up with a group of NYS Legislators, and together they are suing New York Governor Kathy Hochul, DOH Commissioner Bassett, the Department of Health, and the Public Health & Health Planning Council over their illegal forced “Isolation and Quarantine” regulation!
Uniting NYS is proud to be standing together with Senator George Borrello, Assemblyman Mike Lawler, and Assemblyman Chris Tague in their pursuit of justice. These legislators are true leaders. A brilliant Amicus Brief has been filed by Assemblymen Andy Goodell, Joe Giglio, and Minority Leader Will Barclay in support of this historic lawsuit against the Governor.
The Regulation being challenged: 10 NYCRR 2.13 “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures”
Allows the DOH to pick and choose who they want to force to isolate or quarantine, without proof that the person poses a health threat, for however long the DOH wishes to force the quarantine, and at a location that the DOH deems appropriate (which can include a quarantine “facility” or detention center). They do not need to prove that you are actually sick. They can just suspect that you MIGHT be harboring a communicable disease.
There is no age restriction, so they can force you, or your child, or your elderly parent/grandparent into isolation or quarantine, for however long they want! It is the antithesis of what our country stands for, so this must be stopped! You can read the full text of the regulation here: https://regs.health.ny.gov/volume-tit…
