When Elizabeth Linscott tested positive for Coronavirus, she had no plans to leave her house. But after refusing to sign self-quarantining papers issued by the Hardin County Health Department, the young mother and her husband had no choice but to stay home: they were fitted with ankle monitors and placed on house arrest.

Linscott exhibited no symptoms but took a test in preparation to visit her parents and grandparents in Michigan. When she received a positive test result, the health department reached out to her. They demanded that she sign documents that required her to contact them and receive approval any time that she wanted to leave her home.

Linscott refused to sign the papers, saying, “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.” Linscott had every intention of notifying healthcare workers of her positive test result if she needed treatment.

After her refusal to sign, Linscott received a text message alerting her that the situation would be escalated and the authorities would be involved. The Director of Public Health told a judge that Linscott was refusing to self-quarantine.

The county sheriff arrived at Linscott’s home later that week and fitted her and her husband, Isaiah, with ankle monitors that will go off if they travel more than 200 feet from their home.

Linscott never refused to self-quarantine; she just refused to sign the paperwork presented to her.

The couple is now planning to hire an attorney.
