Wannabe New York Dictator Kathy Hochul and the New York State Department of Health gave themselves the power to force citizens into quarantine inside a “facility” of their choice.
Citizens would have to remain in the facility for however long the governor and health department deem appropriate.
The tyrants granted themselves this authority even if they think an individual might have a communicable disease.
This sounds like Nazi Germany or Communist China instead of the United States of America.
Uniting NYS has filed a lawsuit against Governor Kathy Hochul and the New York State Department of Health for their egregious power grab.

From Uniting NYS:
Uniting NYS is proud to announce that we have teamed up with a group of NYS Legislators, and together we are suing Governor Hochul, DOH Commissioner Bassett, the Department of Health, and the Public Health & Health Planning Council over their illegal forced “Isolation and Quarantine” regulation! We are proud to be standing together with Senator George Borrello, Assemblyman Mike Lawler, and Assemblyman Chris Tague in our pursuit of justice. These legislators are true leaders.
The Regulation…10 NYCRR 2.13 “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures”
- Allows the DOH to pick and choose who they want to force to isolate or quarantine, without proof that the person poses a health threat, for however long the DOH wishes to force the quarantine, and at a location that the DOH deems appropriate (which can include a quarantine “facility” or detention center).
- They do not need to prove that you are actually sick. They can just suspect that you MIGHT be harboring a communicable disease.
- There is no age restriction, so they can force you, or your child, or your elderly parent/grandparent into isolation or quarantine, for however long they want!
- It is the antithesis of what our country stands for, so we intend to stop them!
The Lawsuit…Attorney Bobbie Anne Cox, of Cox Lawyers, PLLC, filed the lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court the beginning of April. The case is all about separation of powers between the Executive branch of government (the Governor and DOH) vs the Legislative branch of government (our State Senators and Assembly Members). This “regulation” is really a law that the Governor and DOH are illegally forcing on the people. Only the Legislative branch has the power to make law. The Governor and her Department of Health do not have the power to force people to isolate or quarantine. This is a clear example of extreme government overreach. When one branch of government usurps the power of the other branch(es), that is tyranny.
