From the Washington State Legislature:

WAC 246-100-040
Procedures for isolation or quarantine.

(1) At his or her sole discretion, a local health officer may issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine in accordance with subsection (3) of this section, or may petition the superior court ex parte for an order to take the person or group of persons into involuntary detention for purposes of isolation or quarantine in accordance with subsection (4) of this section, provided that he or she:
(a) Has first made reasonable efforts, which shall be documented, to obtain voluntary compliance with requests for medical examination, testing, treatment, counseling, vaccination, decontamination of persons or animals, isolation, quarantine, and inspection and closure of facilities, or has determined in his or her professional judgment that seeking voluntary compliance would create a risk of serious harm; and
(b) Has reason to believe that the person or group of persons is, or is suspected to be, infected with, exposed to, or contaminated with a communicable disease or chemical, biological, or radiological agent that could spread to or contaminate others if remedial action is not taken; and
(c) Has reason to believe that the person or group of persons would pose a serious and imminent risk to the health and safety of others if not detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine.
(2) A local health officer may invoke the powers of police officers, sheriffs, constables, and all other officers and employees of any political subdivisions within the jurisdiction of the health department to enforce immediately orders given to effectuate the purposes of this section in accordance with the provisions of RCW 43.20.050(4) and 70.05.120.

This feels very familiar…

  1. My mother was forced into a sanatorium when I was very young because she had a lung infection they thought might be tuberculosis. (This was in the 1960s, and they knew about antibiotics.) She was away for weeks leaving four children behind. It makes me mad to think about it, but she was sick, and they couldn’t make a diagnosis. But now they want to quarantine healthy people who have no known exposure to COVID. That is indefensible.

  2. So when they use this to begin arresting and forcibly vaccinating people, the guns will come out. Imagine, if you will, the existence of 25 million pissed off people with guns. That is about a thousand times as many people as there were in the Taliban that Biden already surrendered to.

  3. It was supposed to be a fight against the pandemic to protect the people. It became a fight against the people to protect the pandemic.

  4. And before FDR there was Woodrow Wilson, who forcibly detained German-Americans, seized German-American property and hounded other German-Americans out of their jobs and livelihoods. To the point that speaking German or acknowledging you could speak German could cost you your job.

    What is it with Democrats?

  5. As another frequent commenter observed, on a later post, George Carlin had a thought on this:”I’ve seen this newsreel before, from the 1930s, but it was hard to understand because all the narration was in German!”
