Health officers will sign ‘detention order’ if ‘you do not comply with this request’
A Washington state lawmaker is alerting citizens to “isolation camps” set up in his state and others to house people who become infected with COVID-19, warning that contrary to the conventional narrative, they are not voluntary.
State Republican Rep. Matt Shea of the Spokane area in eastern Washington, explained in a video interview with The New American magazine that the camps are part of Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee’s policy of contract tracing, which has been implemented by many states.
He explained that the tracers visit people who may have been infected and advise them they can isolate at a center to protect other members of their household.
While the infected person may be asked to volunteer, the government makes it clear that people can be forcibly quarantined, Shea pointed out.
He read a line from a form that local health officers are to present to someone who is infected.
It says: “If you do not comply with this request for voluntary quarantine I may/will sign a detention order, enforced by the police, to ensure your compliance.”
Shea said the centers are being set up at county fairgrounds, and he is hearing of it happening in other states.
He noted that another element of the contact tracing in Washington state was Inslee’s order that restaurants log the names and contact information of anyone who sits down to eat. Fierce opposition to the policy led to the governor withdrawing the measure.
Shea said that media, acknowledging there are isolation camps, have called the claim that they are not voluntary a “conspiracy theory.”
Facebook, in fact, has been censoring posts he said, insisting it is voluntary.
But it’s not voluntary, he pointed out, when you have a “detention order, enforced by police” to ensure compliance.
