Mississippi Plans 5-Year Jail Term for Those Who Do Not Isolate When Sick

"The failure or refusal to obey the lawful order of a health officer is, at a minimum, a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $500 or imprisonment for six months or both..."

The state of Mississippi will punish anybody who fails to isolate with COVID-19 with a five-year prison sentence, Shore News Network reported.

In addition, the state plans to fine residents who violate the lockdown order $5,000.

The state’s leading health official, Thomas Dobbs, seized the authority to issue sweeping and unconstitutional diktats without the cooperation of any of the real branches of government.

“All persons, including fully vaccinated individuals, infected with COVID-19 must remain in the home or other appropriate residential location for 10 days from onset of illness,” Dobbs decreed.

The medical doctor further added to his political power by arbitrarily imposing a fine and imprisonment for simply failing to obey the commands of any health officer.

“The failure or refusal to obey the lawful order of a health officer is, at a minimum, a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $500 or imprisonment for six months or both,” he claimed.

But if a citizen fails to obey the doctor’s political orders in the case that the disease is “life-threatening,” which apparently includes COVID-19, he will be hit with a much steeper penalty.

In such an instance, the offender would be hit with a fine of “up to $5,000 or imprisonment for up to five years or both.”

In order to escape the mandatory self-isolation, any sick citizen must be fever-free for 24 hours and display improved symptoms.

Mississippi school employees and students must also abide by the order.

The doctor’s statement echoes a similar order issued at this time last year by the state’s Health Department.

In August 2020, it invented a measure commanding a self-isolation of 14 days.

Dobbs’s reckless power grab is modeled upon Biden administration COVID czar Anthony Fauci‘s similarly ambitious scheme to deliver political power into the hands of medical professionals.
