    I never said medical quarantine "did not trump". But you do know there is a federal statute on quarantine and isolation...right? You know that right?

    What else do you call someone who has no concern for the health of others as long as they are allowed free rein themselves? The very epitome of NIMBY, the acronym not the poster.

    You do know there are also state statutes and in this case more applicable since it was the state medical that ordered the quarantine in face of the federal failure. The state stepped in with actual science when the feds were busy playing PC politics.

    She wasn't infected, she knew it. NJ screwed up royally and mistreated her.
    That is not being a bitch, that is standing up for her rights against a bunch of moron grandstanding politicians.

    No, it this case it's a blatant disregard towards the medical safety of others. She did not "know" she wasn't infected. She wouldn't have known that until the quarantine period was over. That's what quarantine is for.

    Yes, I know there are federal statutes. Your point?

    Before we go further down this path where you totally ignore all established protocols just because you don't think diseases will ever affect you and yours, a little education may go a long way.

    And the available science says she should have stayed quarantined. Because had she been viral, she would be happily infecting others.
