Florida SB 2006 was signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis. The intent of the law was to prohibit “Covid passports,” which it does do. Somewhere along the line a portion of the law was left over from the original Florida code that has some Conservatives concerned: that the State can vaccinate or quarantine someone deemed a danger ”by any means necessary.” (Freedom wire)
Story continues below:
4. Ordering an individual to be examined, tested, vaccinated, treated, isolated, or quarantined for communicable diseases that have significant morbidity or mortality and present a severe danger to public health. Individuals who are unable or unwilling to be examined, tested, vaccinated, or treated for reasons of health, religion, or conscience may be subjected to isolation or quarantine.
a. Examination, testing, vaccination, or treatment may be performed by any qualified person authorized by the State Health Officer.
b. If the individual poses a danger to the public health, the State Health Officer may subject the individual to isolation or quarantine. If there is no practical method to isolate or quarantine the individual, the State Health Officer may use any means necessary to vaccinate or treat the individual.
c. Any order of the State Health Officer given to effectuate this paragraph is immediately enforceable by a law enforcement officer under s. 381.0012.SB 2006 (2021- PG 38-39, line 1097-1114)
Did DeSantis read this law before signing it? Maybe not. The law is 42 pages long. Reading through the strikeouts and underlines is a daunting task for all of us. That section is at the very end of SB 2006.
The relevant section of SB 2006 is almost a contradiction to the rest of the law, which grants a great deal of freedom to Floridians. Businesses cannot demand a piece of paper or vaccination to employees, schools can’t demand vaccination, and it grants cherished right to privacy to residents of the state. But that one section towards the end of the 42 pages nearly puts a crimp in the entire law – and gives the state too much power over the individual.
When you’re allowing the Executive Branch to deprive somebody of a constitutional liberty without any process, that is something that affects all Americans because that’s a precedent that can be used.Ron DeSantis
How is there any due process if a police officer can force someone into quarantine or be vaccinated or treated for a disease? How is there any due process if an unelected Health official claims that someone is a danger to society? That’s the stuff of Communist China. “By any means necessary” is a frightening concept.
Precedents like that DO affect all Americans. We have all seen how one pandemic, and the emergency health orders that came with it, can destroy our Constitutional rights and wreak havoc with everyone’s lives. The Covid pandemic turned Americans against one another as bad as CRT and Black Lives Matter. The mask nazis demanded our compliance, even though the “science” wasn’t certain that masks really helped. People were arrested and/or fined exorbitant amounts just for doing everyday business. Panic, chaos, fear ran rampant through the nation. We hope that Governor DeSantis will get that portion of SB 2006 fixed before the next ‘health emergency.’
