I take a certain amount of solace in knowing that the CDC doesn't Quarantine without good reason. The last wide-scale Quarantine was 1918–1919.
Since then, there have only been two isolated instances of CDC imposed Quarantine, being in 1963, of a single passenger arriving in the United States
as a suspected case of smallpox, and in 2007 when a traveler with drug-resistant TB was placed in isolation. So, I'm not one of those who would worry
about wide-scale mandatory Quarantines due to H1N1.
However, at lunch today I overheard a woman talking about her child's Day Care being Quarantined by the local Health Department for H1N1. A single
child of the Day Care was confirmed with having H1N1, so now either the children have to stay at the Hospital for the next 6 days under observation,
or their parents can take them home and keep them isolated for 2 weeks (and any other school-age children in the family would have to be isolated from
school for 2 weeks as well).
The stranger part of this is that it never hit the local news. I called the local papers and news stations and none of them had heard of this. Calling
the Health Department they asked if I had a child at that Day Care...after telling them "No" they declined to answer any further questions.
So, although we may not have to worry about wide-scale Quarantines from the CDC, local County and State Health Departments could conduct wide-scale
Quarantines without it affecting the CDC's almost non-existent practice of mandatory Quarantines. And, if the CDC isn't initiating the Quarantine,
there is little likelihood it will make the MSM when it happens.
So, if you don't fear the CDC, like me...perhaps it's time to fear your local Health Department for all the same Conspiracy Reasons everyone else
has mentioned about H1N1 Quarantines.
