Guarding Against Future Attempts to Establish Draconian Quarantine Regulations

New York State is one of the two most progressive states in the union, often serving as an incubator for progressive ideas and policies. The state appears to be at the forefront of attempts to establish quarantine or isolation regulations that are so broad as to allow virtually any citizen to be scooped up and incarcerated through lockdowns at home or away in some other facility.
The loosely written regulation 10 NYCRR 2.3, “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures,” was designed to give broad discretion to the Commissioner of Health and to any minions in deciding who, when, and where a targeted person gets confined.1
New York recently proposed these precedent-breaking health regulations that have been shot down in court for the moment. The proposal would have allowed the Commissioner of Health or appointed substitutes to isolate or quarantine people for suspicion of carrying a “highly contagious communicable disease,” a medical category that includes the common cold, as well as the flu. The broadness of the category enables abuse.2
Attorney Bobbie Ann Flower Cox updated the Breggin’s this week on the threat of overreaching quarantine regulations being enacted in New York State, reporting that the State of New York Supreme Court issued a judgment barring the implementation of this new regulation.3
However, she warns citizens need to be ever vigilant at this time as this case could be appealed by Governor Hochul, especially should she win the November election to be the NY governor. New Yorkers concerned about their very liberty and freedoms, their constitutional rights, need to be vigilant about electing officials who will reject regulations and proposed laws that violate Constitutional rights.
