New York Supreme Court previously struck down state rule allowing people exposed to contagious disease to be forced into quarantine
Far-left Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed an appeal against a ruling by the state Supreme Court preventing the state government from forcing people into quarantine and isolation if they were exposed or infected with a contagious communicable disease, according to multiple reports.
New York’s Rule 2.13, or “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures,” was originally adopted in Feb. 2022, and enabled New York’s commissioner of health to direct local health authorities to issue “isolation and/or quarantine orders” to “all such persons as the State Commissioner of Health shall determine appropriate” in order to control the potential spread of a “highly contagious communicable disease.”
It also allowed any such isolation to be at home, “or such other residential or temporary housing location” determined appropriate by the commissioner.
