Kentucky Couple Forced To Wear Ankle Bracelets After Refusing Self-Isolation Order

A Kentucky couple can't travel more than 200 feet from home after authorities slapped a pair of ankle bracelets on them following an argument over COVID-19.

Elizabeth Linscott tested positive for the virus last weekend despite having no symptoms. Following her test, the health department contacted her and asked that she sign documents agreeing to self-quarantine unless she calls the health department first. Linscott refused to sign the form, the Self-isolation and Controlled Movement Agreed Order.

"My part was if I have to go to the ER, if I have to go to the hospital, I’m not going to wait to get the approval to go," she told WKYT, adding that she would take necessary precautions if she needed hospitalization - such as informing healthcare providers that she recently tested positive.
