Attention Idiots - You will get sued if you ignore quarantines & expose others to COVID-19

Coronavirus is NOT a HOAX - idiots - you are killing people.

A lot of people ask me what the MPH stands for after my name - Master in Public Health.

Plus, that Esq. thing makes me a litigator.

I keep reading about unqualified people telling you about coronavirus - well, I'm qualified & maybe it's time that we go back to relying on a meritocracy where you listen to the ones with diplomas on the wall rather than some rambling buffoon. This blog should help motivate you.

Did you know that Courts have ruled that "[a] duty to disclose has been held to exist where the
defendant knew or should have known that he or she had a communicable disease?"

Under the NYS Public Health Law §2(1)(l), a communicable disease "means infectious, contagious or communicable disease." Further, pursuant to 10 NYCRR 2.1 "Severe or novel coronavirus" is designated as a "communicable disease".

Based upon established case law, if someone is infected with coronavirus from an idiot who breaks quarantine they should sue for negligent transmission of the disease. Silver v. Levittown Union Free School District

I'm talking to you, idiot who took the plane to Florida
I'm talking to you, idiot who went to the daddy-daughter dance
I'm talking to you, idiot who went to a business event

This is not a joke, a drill, a hoax, a conspiracy or something the Democrats are doing to Trump - this is life & death.

If that doesn't matter to you, I hope the fact that you now know that you will be sued changes your mind.

If it doesn't, did you know that NYS Public Health Law §2120 permits involuntary commitment of dangerous and careless patients? Plus, §2101 has reporting requirements for physicians, superintendents or officers of institutions, householders, hotel or lodging housekeepers, or any other person where a report must be made to the health officer of the local health district.

What this means is if you are a conspiracy theorist on coronavirus, we are watching you, we are reporting on you, we will sue you and you will be quarantined anyway. Get it?

Please respect quarantines - they matter!
