One of the things that people need to realize about emergency orders is that the government can basically make anything up and throw you in jail or charge you with something almost on a whim.
It is almost like your parents coming up with a new rule on the fly and getting mad at you for not following it.
The other thing, there have been people getting calls about their positive test when they never took one. That being said, you probably have to take three tests and three different places before you can really be sure that you have it.
Two residents of the Florida Keys have been jailed for failing to quarantine after testing positive for the new coronavirus.
Jose Interian, 24, and Yohana Gonzalez, 26, are facing charges of violating isolation rules for a quarantine and violating emergency management disaster preparedness rules, according to jail records. They were arrested Wednesday in Key West, officials said.
Someone videotaped the couple and gave it to Key West police, according to Greg Veliz, Key West’s city manager.
“There were complaints from the neighborhood of them continuing to be outside, going about normal life functions,” Veliz said.
There were no court records in an online docket for the Monroe County court system, so it was not immediately clear whether Interian or Gonzalez had an attorney who could comment.
