A stunning case out of Kentucky is going viral after it was reported a Kentucky couple was forced on to house arrest and made to wear ankle bracelets after the wife tested positive for coronavirus.
Although it not a law that residents self-quarantine, the asymptomatic wife, Elizabeth Linscott, was treated like a criminal when she refused to sign papers agreeing to call the Hardin County Health Department if she left her house.
She claims she had no problem with the quarantine but thought the language of the agreement went too far.
“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,” said Linscott. “We didn’t rob a store. We didn’t steal something. We didn’t hit and run. We didn’t do anything wrong.”
Law enforcement showed up at their house and put both her and her husband on house arrest and forced them to wear ankle bracelets.
