Washington State Board of Health Questioned Over “Involuntary Detainment” For The Unvaccinated

At its November 12, 2021 meeting, the Board held a rules hearing on a Proposed Rule for chapter 246-100 WAC. This week the Washington State Board of Health is set to hold a public hearing on a Proposed Rule that would legalize the “involuntary detainment” of the unvaccinated by “health officials” with the enforcement help of law enforcement.

Under the bill’s “Procedure for Isolation or Quarantine,” power is granted to local health officers (“at his or her sole discretion”) to “issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine.”

The board claims on its site that the orders will only be used to help “modernize the state’s control of communicable disease laws by ending statutory HIV/AIDS exceptionalism, reducing HIV-related stigma, defelonizing HIV exposure, and removing barriers to HIV testing.”

However, the Proposed Rule for chapter 246-100 WAC isn’t specific to HIV. The language, either on purpose or coincidentally, was left ambiguous as to which diseases the involuntary detainment orders would be used.

According to the latest version of the Proposed Rule for chapter 246-100 WAC, the health officer must first meet three requirements before detaining a citizen under a health order:

  • make a reasonable effort to obtain voluntary compliance or has determined that voluntary compliance would create a risk of serious harm to the person or a group of people
  • the person or group of people is suspected to be infected with, exposed to, or communicated with a communicable disease or chemical, biological, or radiological agent that could spread to or contaminate others if remedial action is not taken
  • suspects the person or group of people would pose a serious and imminent risk to the health and safety of others if not detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine

The bill grants local health officers the same power as police officers and allows them to detain a suspected person for as long as ten days. Unless the local health officer feels the person is still a danger to themselves and others, at that point, a court can be petitioned to add 30 days onto the quarantine procedures.

Again this is all “unless” the Court finds there is a “reasonable basis to require continued isolation or quarantine.” If the local health officer is successful in the second continuation order, the person can receive an extra 30 day period added to their involuntary detainment.

  1. Hitler has been in his grave for less than eighty years and already his atrocities are being repeated by vile, moronic swine who believe their actions advance the public good—just as Hitler and his stooges believed. A reasonable society would identify individuals who author tyrannical obscenities like 246-100 WAC, have them torn from their beds, publicly whipped, and driven naked into the sea.

  2. And no one is able to see what is going on here? This is out right communist dictatorship, removing US Constitutional Rights, a walk around to bypass Civil Rights, the Deputizing of “Health Officials” into law enforcement and the use of actual police to arrest those that “They” determine, at his or her sole discretion issue an emergency detention order causing a person or group of persons to be immediately detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine.” All under the guise of “To help modernize the state’s control of communicable disease laws by ending statutory HIV/AIDS exceptionalism, reducing HIV-related stigma, defelonizing HIV exposure, and removing barriers to HIV testing.”
    For the benefit of those not able to understand this kind of double talk legal mumbo jumbo. It meant that they are hiding behind some outrageously corrupt written law, with very obscure parameters that will allow anyone “They” can appoint as a “Health Official” to arrest anyone “They” deem a public health risk. IOW, if they do not like you, for any reason, you can be deemed a health risk.
    Don’t be fooled by this legal mumbo jumbo, this is the same thing Stalin, Hitler and just about every other 2 bit dictatorship has used in some way. It is always stated as some form of safety to protect the public or some group. But the intended porous is to silence opposition. It gives those with power the ability of the law to hide behind to compel others to enforce unjust laws for them. What prevents them from illegal search and seizure so they can now take your property after they arrest you under these laws?
    This does not have anything to do about health in the long run. This is a Marxist political ploy for power. This has everything to do about forcing people to comply with their demands and silencing anyone that will speak out about their intentions. The right of self protection, your right to own a gun, can be deemed a health issue or you could be deemed a risk to public safety. Don’t think that can happen? The CDC, the JAMA, the NEJM and other medical groups have tried to make owning a gun a health issue many times since the 1980’s. Your right to own and drive a car or a certain vehicle “They” don’t like could be considered a public health risk. The “They” could determine how many vehicles you are allowed to own or if you should be forced to use public transportation. They could even use laws like this to limit or prevent anyone from travail or even moving out of the state over health safety. These laws are so loosely and broadly written they can be used for any porous they want. But at the moment, they are to be used against those people or groups in opposition to their mandates and demands.
    This needs to be stopped or soon these laws will be used against you.
    This is what a storm that is brewing looks like before a civil war starts. This is what these morons want.

  3. We the people need to make sure this never is allowed to happen in the US. ANYWHERE. These so called leaders need to be removed from their posts for failing to uphold their oath of office.

  4. I SURE HOPE YOU ALL HAVE YOUR GUNS HIDDEN AND YOUR AMMO STOCKED AND WITHIN EASY REACH CAUSE IF YOU LET THIS GO YOU ARE GOING TO NEED IT

  5. This is not a “Proposed” rule. This was passed into law in 2018 by the Washington State Legislature. To see the law, google WAC 246-100-070 and WAC 246-100-045. The State Board of Health is meeting on January 12th (tomorrow) to discuss implementing this rule to enforce COVID vaccinations. sboh.wa.gov. It’s all right there.

  6. It is hard to believe that this is the turn our United States of America is taking. There are so many repeats of Nazi German and Communist Russia. There is truth to, “Those who do not know history are bound to repeat it.” (Not necessarily an absolute quote, but close enough.) Once we were a nation of freedoms, especially medical and religious. We were once free to decide for ourselves how to remain healthy. We hear the doctor and then decide whether or not we will follow the advice. We are not now held captive until we do. We also were once free to make religious decisions. How is this religious? Well, when the basic source of the remedy is taken from aborted babies (i.e., babies murdered for the sake of convenience) there is or should be a moral dilemma for those who believe in the sanctity of life. If this “passes,” where do you think we will go from there?

  7. There are people in this scenario that need to be detained but it isn’t the sick. We need to start detaining the tyrants.
