As the number of confirmed U.S. coronavirus cases continues to grow, local courts around the country are dusting off their emergency plans and preparing to play referee if patients refuse to self-quarantine. In Connecticut we have allowed religious exemptions from having to take measles, mumps and rubella vaccine but most of us have taken them so a much smaller overall health problem!
But along comes coronavirus with no vaccine and the 6400 dollar question will be does the State have the legal right to impose a self-quarantine on people who have been granted a religious exemption for them? The gutless CT State legislators just recently grandfathered in allowing all existing religious vaccine exemptions to continue. Once there is a vaccine for the corona Virus let’s hope these same legislators have the guts to put these religious exemption types at the end of the line once it does become available.
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
