by Nancie Orticelli[Editor’s Note: In PART 1, Nancie talked about the drive in Albany to make a COVID VACCINE MANDATORY in New York State, with the State Police enforcing the ordinance. (It’s NOT law yet, but it is moving that way.) Couple that with the reality that a Contact Tracing App is showing up on everyone’s phone’s – un-asked for – and – un-delete-able. Referring to the guarantees found in the 4th Amendment, Nancie wrote: ““The right of the people to be secure in their persons and their effects… That right SHALL NOT BE VIOLATED. Can you think of anything more violating than to be injected by puncturing your skin (your person) with a needle and being forcefully injected with chemicals you do not consent to? Can you think of anything more violating than to have your cell phone (your effects) being hacked with spyware created to monitor your movements and store the data of where you’ve been, who you’ve been with and then share that information with officials without your consent?” Well, if you own a smartphone, either iphone or Android, that second violation is happening as of the beginning of May, 2020. Apple and Google have implemented an update for their devices and for Apple, it’s called ios 13.5.]
So how will this all work? In most states, you are required to open back up in phases. In those phases, the requirement is for all businesses to submit a reopening plan. Part of that plan has to be a log book kept for all costumers entering the establishment. It’s not the businesses implementing this, it’s the government. The government can not forcefully require people to sign in, be subjected to technology on the market right now called thermal image body scanning where your temperature is recorded, they can’t force you to wear a mask… BUT … they can say it’s now policy for a business to include that in their health and safety protocol, and businesses CAN require all these things be done. It’s their constitutional right. No shirt, no shoes, no service ring a bell? But the government is putting these businesses in an awful situation….Oh, WE can’t make people do all these things and comply, and we can’t TELL you that you HAVE to, BUT, if you want to open up in a phase, you have to. Oh, you don’t want to, but will open up anyway? OK! BUT, now we’re going to fine you and take away your licensing (which is unconstitutional as well, but that’s another discussion) and you’ll end up having to close, anyway.
Back to contact tracing… Say you go into a restaurant and test positive for Covid shortly after. Hand your phone or data over and they will contact that restaurant for them to share share their customer logs (which is part of the opening plans businesses must have in place) They contact each person that was there when you were. Then they ask them to quarantine for 14 days. EASY!!!! If Andrew Cuomo can do this, then you can, too, you naughty children.
But here’s the tricky part… What if you went to Home Depot that day? What if you then went to church? What if you had your hair done? Deep breath, deep state! Now you have to contact all those places and check their logs as well, and ask allllll those people to voluntarily quarantine… But wait! There’s more! Health experts say that you could have been contagious 5 days before your symptoms showed. So now you have to remember where you were for each one of those days!! I don’t know about you, but my 44 year old brain ain’t what she used to be. But lucky for me, the government anticipated my brains shortcomings and already updated my phone to monitor where I go 24/7. So, that’s where I’ll hand them all my information and they will do all the work for me. Thank you, comrades!! So now we have the joy of quarantining possibly hundreds of people at one time.
But what if YOU are the one contacted because you were around someone who tested positive? Well, you’re contacted and asked to voluntarily quarantine. But what if you went to eat and someone there was positive? Then 2 days later, you went to Home Depot where someone ELSE was positive? Then 3 days later you went to the hair salon where someone ELSE was positive? Well, lucky you!!! You get multiple voluntary quarantines and you may be locked up for years! YOU get a quarantine! And YOU get a quarantine! And YOU get one, too! Over and over and over (someone let me OFF this ride!)
Remember when I said that the 14 day quarantine was voluntary? Yeah, well, I lied. And apparently so did Governor Jay Inslee from the State of Washington. He stated that it was voluntary. The Washington State Department of Healths guidelines state it’s voluntary.. BUT it also states it’s not. Confused? Hashtag Me, too. Here’s the exact wording of the Request for Voluntary Quarantine document:
- Dear_______________________: I am asking you to voluntarily quarantine yourself (or the following persons for whom you are the parent or legal guardian _________________) because I have determined that you (they)0F1 may have, or have been exposed to _____________________. I believe this is necessary because: Quarantine means that you should not come into contact with other people. It protects your health and the health of others. Please go and remain at ________________________ by _____________________.(Address) (Date and Time)Based on what we now know about __________________, you may need to stay there up to ___________days. We will be checking in on you and will let you know when it is safe for you to return to your normal activities. If you have questions or need help, please call________________. Additional information about __________________ is available at: www.________________. Fact sheets about this disease and the steps you should take to protect yourself and others are attached to this letter. Please take these steps to reduce the risk to yourself and others with whom you may have contact. It is very important that you comply with this request for voluntary quarantine. Your health and the health of others depend on it. If you do not comply with this request for voluntary quarantine we may use a detention order, enforced by the police, to assure your compliance. Thank you for your cooperation and help during this public health emergency. Attached is information about available local resources you can reach by telephone or via the Internet. Included in the attached information is a description of how your basic needs (e.g. groceries, medications) can be met while you are quarantined.___________________________ ________________________Local Health Officer (Date and Time)1The remainder of this letter should be modified if being delivered to the parent or guardian of dependents. The parent or guardian should be given the choice to be quarantined with the dependent. If the parent or guardian does not choose to be quarantined with the dependent, then the parent/guardian is responsible for making arrangements for the dependent’s care and appropriate level of supervision.
- This is the penalty for non-compliance…. If used Court Order for Involuntary Isolation or Quarantine Initially, then Seek an order from the court finding the individual in contempt of court under chapter 7.21 RCW (incarceration and/or fine up to $2,000 per day).
Check out those neat contradicting statements in yellow! Check out the neat penalty for not volunteering!
Here is NYS policy: The NYS Guidance states that individuals who are isolated or quarantined must be treated with compassion and respect, and that local health departments (“LHDs”) must help these individuals meet their housing, social, medical, mental health, and economic needs. The State recommends that LHDs use written agreements with the individuals subject to the varying levels of isolation and quarantine (explained below), and the NYS Department of Health will provide written agreements for each of those scenarios. The NYS Guidance notes that mandatory quarantine can be directed by legal order if not complied with voluntarily.
SO! Here most of it is in a 6 paged nutshell… Contact Tracing. Is it good? Is it ethical? Is it constitutional? I say no. I say our 4th Amendment rights are being trampled on. I say do not comply. I like to think of what our Founding Father’s would have done. Maybe dumped some tea in a harbor.
