Japanese internment camp during WWII
And here we thought Democrats were against internment camps?
Ventura County officials in California announced plans to remove infected residents with the Wuhan virus from their homes and place them in quarantine centers.
On Wednesday, Ventura County Health Director Robert Levin’s confusing announcement suggested that the updated quarantine plans would be forcible, are underway and will continue.
Robert Levin: Some of the people we find are going to have a hard time being isolated. If they live in a home where there is only one bathroom and there are three or four other people living there and those people don’t have covid infections we’re not going to be able to keep that person in that home. Every person who we’re isolating needs to have their own bathroom. So we’ll be moving people like this in to other kinds of housing that we have available.
As Victoria Taft pointed out Ventura County has 846,000 people and only 595 total cases since March.
This is insane.

Update: This post has been updated to reflect Ventura County Health Director’s Levin lack of clarity in his initial remarks.
“I either misspoke or was misinterpreted — I’ll take the blame of having misspoken,” he said on May 6, 2020. “Yesterday, at this conference, at the Board of Supervisors, and I gave people the impression that if you were isolated, you would be taken out of your home and put into a hotel room or a motel room or sequestered in some other way.
“If I did do that, I am very sorry,” he said. “That is an option. That is possible. If you become infected, you don’t want to stay in your home, you’re afraid that you’re going to expose other people, we’ll work with you to find a place to stay.”
