The state of Ohio and FEMA seem unbothered by old conspiracies of FEMA Camps being used to round up civilians.
The Ohio Department of Health has teamed with FEMA in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. The issue came on August 31st, almost immediately after the CDC revised their statistics to include comorbidities for cause of death, revealing the chances of dying from the virus to be far less than previously insisted.
The order (embedded below) calls for the establishment of Non-Congregate Sheltering to be used throughout the state. They are to be established as quarantine housing for those who have been diagnosed with COVID-19, including after being released from the hospital. As if this isn’t bad enough, it is expanded to also include those who may have come in contact with an infected persons, or for individuals who are exhibiting symptoms of the virus.
It is important to highlight the encouraged behavior of citizens and contact tracers, which have included reporting people and business who are observed to be violating COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.
The order (spanning 90 days before renewal) specifies that these facilities are to be put into effect immediately, and used for those who “are unable to safely safe-quarantine in their place of residence.” The ambiguous nature of this language leaves the interpretation open as to who can declare what is considered to be “safe self quarantine,” and if this can be determined by the individual or if it will be determined by the state in some capacity.
For citizens and contact tracers who remain on high-alert, eager to report their neighbors at the first sign of infection, it is important to remember the long list of possible symptoms may include but are not limited to:
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- New loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Congestion or runny nose
- Nausea or vomiting
So be careful Ohio. If you are outside of your home and exhibit any form of mild discomfort, you too may find yourself investigated for Non-Congregated Sheltering.
