ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — Oral arguments were heard Wednesday morning in an appeal case against the Hochul Administration over quarantine regulations relative to COVID by the NYS Department of Health.
Several protestors were outside the New York State Appellate Court Wednesday morning to protest against quarantine, holding up signs, some of which say “No Quarantine Camps.”
Back in July 2022, Senator George Borello and other plaintiffs won a lawsuit against Governor Hochul and the State Department of Health on a regulation that would allow the Commissioner of Health to issue isolation or quarantine orders to control the spread of a communicable disease. A verdict was ruled against the Hochul Administration, striking down the regulation. NY Attorney General Letitia James then filed an appeal to overturn the ruling on behalf of the Hochul Administration and Department of Health.
