[Ed. – The provisions of the law are even worse than they sound at first, as some of them are basically open-ended, leaving “measures deemed necessary” to the discretion of public authorities.  A judge could order involuntary treatment and vaccination.  The law would apply to any infectious disease, not just a coronavirus.  It would probably cause people to avoid being tested at all costs – not a desirable consequence.  The text of the bill is here.]

A law proposed in the New York State Assembly would permit state officials to remove and detain state residents if they were deemed to be a “danger to public health.”

Assembly Bill 416 dictates that, “upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease,” state officials may “order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons.”

“Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises,” the bill continues.
