Was anything else in that paperwork? Why is this family being singled out? There are a lot more people in Kentucky alone that have probably tested positive for COVID. They can’t travel over 200 feet unless they contact the health department first. Will anybody pick up the phone if they call? There’s a child involved and that child needs to eat. Many people nationwide self quarantined when the virus broke out, this family was doing that anyway.
The devil is in that paperwork
We crossed needing identification paperwork with you where ever you go a long time ago. We should always carry some kind of identification such as a driver’s license now.
Elizabeth Linscott of Hardin County, Kentucky tested positive for COVID. She refused to sign the paperwork because of the language. “My part was if I have to go to the ER, if I have to go to the hospital, I’m not going to wait to get the approval to go,” Elizabeth said.
State officials at your door with paperwork
This type of action is normally reserved for the FBI finding a fugitive, not a family member testing positive for a worldwide disease.
”I open up the door and there’s like eight different people,” said Linscott’s husband, Isaiah. “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 he has three different papers for us. For me, her and my daughter.”
The Linscotts don’t seem to afraid. That’s good. Behavior like this requires the advice of somebody on government level. The Linscotts will be looking for an attorney.
An official already lied about her
”That’s exactly what the Director of the Public Health Department told the judge, that I was refusing to self-quarantine because of this and that was not the case at all,” Linscott said. “I never said that.” She said straight away she’s being careful.
COVID is a convenient excuse for local, county and state officials to do things they wouldn’t ordinarily do. If one family can be singled out in this draconian manner, it can happen to anybody else.
