CDC Quietly Published New Rules for Quarantine & Remoteness on Last Day of Obama’s Presidency
CDC and HHS “has been granted the specialist by Congress to ‘apprehend and detain’ individuals for the purposes of preventing the introduction, transmission and spread associated with quarantinable communicable disease because specified in an Executive Purchase of the President, ” document states.
At the last day of the Obama administration, the CDC quietly published a new set of rules that can force travelers into pen or isolation if they are suspected of contracting a infectious disease.
The rules were released beneath the Federal Registrar on the last day of the Obama Administration, 1/19/2017, and took effect on Feb 21, 2017.
Despite public concern that the new rules would introduce forced vaccination methods, the CDC insisted it will not “ force vaccination or medical treatment . ”
Many public remarks expressed concern that these up-to-date regulations sought to compel medical treatment or vaccination without patient consent… HHS/CDC will not seek to compel vaccination or medical treatment. In keeping with present practice, HHS/CDC recommends certain vaccines for post-exposure prophylaxis and individuals may choose to stick to these recommendations as they consider appropriate.
As we’ve observed, the CDC left that part up to businesses , Democrat politicians , and the military .
Under these types of new rules, the CDC warrants quarantine and solitude for diseases like SARS, influenza viruses, viral hemorrhagic fever viruses, but again emphasizes that forced vaccination defintely won’t be implemented:
These quarantinable contagious diseases are currently limited to cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis OR TB, plague, smallpox, yellow temperature, and viral hemorrhagic fevers (such as Marburg, Ebola, Lassa fever, and Crimean-Congo), severe acute respiratory syndromes, and influenza caused by new or re-emergent influenza viruses that are causing or have the potential to cause a pandemic. Find Executive Order 13295 (April 4, 2003), as amended by Executive Order 13375 (April 1, 2005) and Executive Order 13674 (July 31, 2014). Changes to the list of quarantinable communicable illnesses are beyond the scope of this regulation. And once again, we reemphasize that HHS/CDC does not intend, through these types of regulations, to mandate vaccination or compulsory medical treatment of individuals.
Though the CDC confesses it has no authority to “ arrest” or forcibly detain individuals, the new rules state that travelers who exhibit symptoms of illness can be quarantined or “ detained” in case infected by diseases specific by the President.
To be clear, HHS/CDC is not a police force agency, it has no lawful authority to “ arrest” individuals, but rather has been given the authority by Congress to “ apprehend plus detain” individuals for the factors like preventing the introduction, tranny and spread of quarantinable communicable disease as specific in an Executive Order of the President. 42 U. S. C. 264(b). This provision further provides that “ regulations may provide that if upon examination any such individual is found to be infected, he may become detained for such period and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary. ” 42 U. S. D. 264(d)(1). HHS/CDC strongly believes that these authorities may be implemented in a manner consistent with the U. S. Constitution. Additionally, during the period of apprehension, HHS/CDC will certainly arrange for adequate food and water, appropriate accommodation, appropriate medical therapy, and means of necessary communication.
Additionally , such powers to detain travelers will be deferred to the US Traditions and Border Protection agency or the U. S. Coastline Guard.
… In keeping with present practice and existing regulation, law enforcement support for pen or isolation orders will certainly generally be provided by U. S. Customs and Edge Protection, U. S. Coast Guard, or other Government law enforcement programs, but HHS/CDC may also accept voluntary Condition and local assistance in enforcing its Federal purchases.
And alarmingly, the rules declare that vaccination may be a “ conditional” prerequisite for release from quarantine:
HHS/CDC clarifies that when medically appropriate, vaccination or treatment, may be “ conditions” of an individual’s release from quarantine or isolation. People consent to these conditions.
Particularly, CDC dismissed public issues that deferring to the World Health Organization’s “ General public Health Emergency of Global Concern (PHEIC) would surrender US sovereignty to the worldwide body.
HHS/CDC also received a comment objecting to referencing the WHO’s announcement of a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) in the definition of ‘ ‘ public health emergency” because ostensibly relinquishes U. H. sovereignty. HHS/CDC disagrees.
By including references to a PHEIC, HHS/CDC is not constraining its actions or makings its actions subject to the particular dictates of the WHO. Instead, the declaration or notice of a PHEIC is only one of the ways for HHS/CDC to define when the precommunicable stage of a quarantinable communicable disease might be likely to cause a public health emergency if transmitted to individuals.
Creating new pen and isolation powers towards the CDC – citing the WHO as an authoritative reference point – was just the 1st phase of the world authorities takeover under the auspices of the public health emergency.
The second phase is being applied right now by the Biden administration, whose COVID czar Dr . Ashish Jha suggested this week that Many pandemic response should be directed by the United Nations .
