Executive Order Authorizes Forced Quarantines, Isolation Facilities, Involuntary Commitment

On Friday, Republican Tennessee Governor Bill Lee issued an executive order that has many Tennesseans concerned that it gives the state permission to call out the State Guard and National Guard “in connection with certain health care and emergency services operations.”

A statewide conservative coalition with influence called Tennessee Stands has said they believe the governor’s orders are “exceptionally concerning.”

Some things contained in the order sound like something out of Orwell’s 1984 and it’s disturbing coming from a Republican governor. Things like the construction of “temporary quarantine and isolation facilities.” Wait, what? What does Bill Lee know that the rest of us don’t? Why do they need isolation facilities?

Another item in the order is “Telephone assessments for involuntary commitment cases are permitted.” Involuntary commitment? At first, that does not sound good and it makes it seems like the state is expecting an awful lot of COVID cases, so many that telephone assessments will be necessary because on-the-ground staff will be overwhelmed with people.
