Couple forced to wear ankle monitors after testing positive for COVID
“We didn’t rob a store, we didn’t steal something, we didn’t hit and run, we didn’t do anything wrong…”
“I open up the door, and there’s like eight different people, five different cars, and I’m like ‘what the heck’s going on?’ This guy’s in a suit with a mask. It’s the Health Department guy, and they have three papers for us. For me, her and my daughter,”
The couple was ordered to wear ankle monitors. If they travel more than 200 feet, law enforcement will be notified.
A Kentucky couple was shocked to find out that they are now legally required to be under house arrest and wear ankle monitors after one of them tested positive for coronavirus and declined to sign self-quarantine papers. Public Heath officials showed up at their house unannounced and told them of the situation.
They even required that their baby girl be placed under these strict quarantine rules despite the fact that no one was showing any symptoms of coronavirus. The woman says she never disagreed to self-quarantine, she just disagreed with the wording of the Health Department’s documents. Which I will agree is very strict for no reason.
The documents stated that the couple must call the Health Department every single day and report their body temperature. It stated that if covid symptoms developed and got worse then the couple would need to contact the Health Department BEFORE contacting the local hospital…
This is way too extreme and unnecessary. It is insane how often the Government chooses to target good people more than they target any real criminals. I notice that the government likes to go after people they think are less capable of putting up a fight.
The couple did state that they are looking for an attorney.
