A woman in Kentucky, Elizabeth Linscott, who tested positive for COVID-19 has been ordered by local health department authorities to stay at home — ordered, and then when she balked, slapped with court papers and shackled around the ankle with a monitor that basically sounds an alarm if she leaves her residence.
Linscott’s husband, Isaiah, received the same treatment.
It’s happening, America. Wake up and smell the contact tracing — the “new normal” that allows government to knock on doors and demand voluntary self-quarantining compliance from free citizens, else face mandatory, court-approved house arrest.
Leftists have worked hard to play down the dangers of a government that’s given the authority to oversee private citizens’ health decisions, i.e. the new coronavirus. Democratic Rep. Bobby Rush’s staff, for example, in an email in May, in several angry, arrogant emails in May, in fact, fought tooth and nail to downplay the dangers to citizens’ freedom that are inherent within the congressman’s H.R. 6666, the “COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act” — the dangers that call for huge amounts of money, up to $100 billion, actually, to be thrown local health departments’ way to
“trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals, and to support the quarantine of such contacts, through mobile health units and, as necessary … at [citizens’] residence.”
In other words: Money for government to knock on citizens’ doors and demand they self-quarantine — or else.
And left-leaning members of the media have gone into overdrive to ensure such truths of contact tracing are similarly squelched.
