On Friday, The Mississippi State Department of Health imposed new guidelines that require anyone infected with Covid 19 to isolate for 10 days at home.
The order took effect immediately and also included those who were fully vaccinated.
Dissenters who leave their homes and violate the draconian policy will face massive fines and possibly be thrown in jail.

Its not just a short time-out either – In addition to being fined up to $5,000, anyone who is found not mindlessly complying with the unconstitutional mandate could face a felony conviction and up to 5 years behind bars.
“All persons residing in Missssippi must immediately home-isolate on first knowledge of infection with COVID-19.
All persons, including fully vaccinated individuals, infected with COVID-19 must remain in the home or other appropriate residential location for 10 days from onset of illness (or 10 days from the date of a positive test for those who are asymptomatic).
The failure or refusal to obey the lawful order of a health officer is, at minimum, a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $500.00 (41-3-59) or imprisonment for 6 months or both. If a life-threatening disease is involved, failure or refusal to obey the lawful order of a health officer is a felony, punishable by a fine of up to $5,000.00 or imprisonment for up to five years or both (41-23-2).
The authoritarian health ‘officer’ who signed off on the soviet-style order, Dr. Thomas Dobbs, also gave ridiculous recommendations for those who decided to mindlessly comply, telling them to mask up in their own house and limit contact with other household members.
Persons infected with COVID-19 should limit exposure to household contacts. No visitors should be allowed in the home. Please stay in a specific room away from others in your home. Use a separate bathroom if available. If you need to be around others in your home, you should wear a face mask.

I’d expect this kind of crackdown from those Beijing-wannabees down under in Australia – I wouldn’t even be shocked to see something like this in New York or California… But the republican stronghold of Mississippi?
The last time they even voted for a democrat over the republican in the presidential election was in 1976.
Now, they betray their constituents and aid the destruction of American freedoms.
