For now, it’s your friendly local law enforcement, who won’t talk to residents or answer questions, and a non-attack variant of helicopters…
(Silver Doctors Editors) If the healthcare response to coronavirus is any indication, the law enforcement response to coronavirus is going to be equally botched.
Case in point: Local police quarantine a neighborhood in California.
ROCKLIN, Calif. (KMAX/KOVR/CNN) – Sacramento County Sheriff deputies and Rocklin Police, some wearing protective gloves, converged on a residential street Thursday as a sheriff’s helicopter circled overhead, ordering people to get inside.
The article highlighted above includes video coverage, which shows the helicopter:
Why were they doing that?
What was going on?
Well, according to this resident, law enforcement never told them what was going on:
It’s not hard connecting the dots, however, as clearly demonstrated by the resident’s understanding by observing the series of events that took place.
Eventually, the quarantine was lifted:
People who live there were unclear why. Officers eventually let them come and go from their homes.
And a statement was issued:
The Placer County Health Department issued a brief statement shortly after the police presence, stating: “Law enforcement partners are currently responding to enforce a health officer’s order. We cannot share any additional information to protect patient confidentiality.”
Carry on residents.
Nothing to see here.
