New York State already has a Public Health Law (NYSPHL) which provides for the isolation and quarantine of those who are infected with contagious and communicable diseases. It dates back to 1953, so no one in his right mind is looking to challenge this law. The health and well-being of all New Yorkers is always of primary concern, just not at the expense of individual and civil liberties—or the dismantling of the Constitution.

The bill would sit dormant, never even to receive a sponsor in the Senate, until 2021 when, consistent with a national trend to usurp civil liberties as a result of COVID, the bill began to pick up steam.
