Mississippians who test positive for the China virus and refuse to quarantine could face jail time and severe fines, according to the state’s top health officer.

Dr. Thomas Dobbs issued an “isolation order” that states, “All persons residing in Mississippi must immediately home-isolate on first knowledge of infection with COVID-19.”

Failure to do so could result in fines and jail time. Citizens who refuse to obey a health officer could face $500 fines and up to six months behind bars.

But the order also states that where a life-threatening disease is involved in a refusal to obey, violators could face a fine of up to $5,000 and possibly five years behind bars.

The Mississippi order says Covid-19 patients must remain at home or an appropriate “residential location” for at least 10 days without contacting others.

State Sen. Chris McDaniel told Mississippians to contact him immediately “ff any agent of the state of Mississippi attempts to arrest or threatens to prosecute you because of COVID-related order or incident.”
If you are threatened with arrest, call 601.359.4088.
