Washington State Board of Health issues clarifications in front of Wednesday’s public meeting

The following was originally published by The Center Square.

(The Center Square) – The Washington State Board of Health issued a press release to clarify two items on its agenda as it holds its first meeting of the new year on Wednesday.

Speculation has included claims that the board would vote in favor of both mandatory detainment for people who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 and mandatory vaccinations for school children.

“Due to the large volume of questions we are receiving from interested folks, we want to clarify some misinformation that has circulated online regarding two topics on the agenda,” the release said.

On his KXL-FM101 radio show recently, host Lars Larson said the board was “planning to add COVID to the list of diseases for which it has authority to order law enforcement to forcibly detain and quarantine people.”

In its release, the board explains that the agenda item in question is in response to House Bill 1551, which was passed last year, so that its rules will be in line with state law.

The bill outlines what steps can be taken — including confinement — against a person who knowingly has a sexually transmitted disease and continues to engage in activities that could spread it to others. Doing so is a gross misdemeanor under state law.

Such confinement, which has to be approved by a judge, is the last step of several that a public health officer can take if a person refuses a medical examination and ignores cease and desist orders.

The board said the agenda item “does not include changes to isolation or quarantine policies nor does it suggest law enforcement be used to enforce any vaccination requirements.”

Also on the agenda is an update from the board’s Technical Advisory Group, which has been studying whether or not to add COVID-19 to the list of vaccinations that are required for students.

“The board will not take action on this agenda item at the meeting,” according to the release.

The release also said that if the board adds COVID-19 to the list of required vaccinations, the same medical, religious, philosophical and personal exemptions currently available for immunizations would apply.

Since the pandemic began in March of 2020, Washington has reported 982,000 cases and 10,087 deaths. There are currently 1,773 people in the state hospitalized with coronavirus, more than double from two weeks ago, with 152 of them on ventilators.

WHATCOM NEWS EDITOR’S NOTE: Regarding the statistics in the last paragraph; Washington state reporting does not differentiate between the number of people hospitalized FOR COVID-19 and people hospitalized WITH COVID-19 (may be in the hospital for a different reason with mild or no symptoms and tested positive upon entry or while in the hospital).

    Herd immunity or herd mentality? Which way are we going…Dictator Inslee has been cooperating with Chinese interests for years now. In our stead! Well, shitohdear time to get the SOB out of office. How do we move past selections back to elections? We can’t even begin to recall Inslee unless the AG agrees to allowing it! What about We The People, people? These unapproved ‘vaccines’ are gene altering injections. Clot shots. Depop tools. Bioweapons. Can’t make it any clearer. Those who know the least obey the best. Let’s Go Brandon

    I have been a scientist and engineer most of my life. I read scientific and technical journals regularly. I am concerned about my health and the health of my neighbors. I’m vaccinated and boosted. I wear a high quality mask in public. I intend to vote for officials who take covid seriously and support the scientific consensus on the best response to the pandemic, although I realize that the current consensus is likely to change as we learn more.

    You are absolutely correct .

    Thank you Mary Waschke for your input. It’s important to follow the science and not the politics or personal feelings. It’s amazing how many people truly do not know about mRNA or how long it has been studied. Your comment is appreciated.

    So was Dr. Mengele. As a result the Nuremberg Code was adopted as you well know to prevent the very forced experimentations going on around the world now. Big pharma is still only producing commercial quantities of their still experimental vaccines. A man as learned as yourself knows full well these vaccines were granted emergency use by FDA only, not full approval. On August 23, 2021 the FDA gave full approval to Pfizer/BioNTech for their “vaccine”. They have NOT made that available as of this date. Why you ask? By not making the new Comirnaty vax commercially available they can still produce and sell their “emergency use” vaccines and stay shielded from liability lawsuits. They also have large inventories of the old vaccine they can still sell for billions rather than flush them down the toilet. Now why would they be afraid of the lawsuits for a safe vaccine? Maybe its not so safe after all. I disgusts me than so called learned people like yourself never address the millions of adverse events related to injecting this poison into the human body. Check the CDC’s own VAERS (vaccine adverse event reporting system) for yourself. How many healthy 20 something world class athletes have to have heart attacks or drop dead after taking these vaccines before some of you wake up? No one but God alone knows what the long term effects of this poison will be. And for what, to survive an already 97% plus survivable virus? What you do with your body is your business, and mine is mine. And rest assured, the current consensus will change and is changing weekly. And you are not going to be happy when you learn what you’ve done to your body and its immune system when it does.
