Did you know if you test positive for COVID your rights to privacy will be violated?
Even though the McLean County Health Department says to stay home until you have been fever free for 3 days and at least 7 days since symptoms first appeared, Metcom and Bloomington Dispatch will know about your diagnosis for 30 days. Of course that’s 30 days if someone is regularly deleting tags they placed on addresses.
What will law enforcement do if you are caught outside your house while a tag is on your address? We don’t know, maybe that hasn’t happened.
Government has decided a disease with an extremely low death rate warrants violating your rights. It’s becoming a pattern.

If you aren’t familiar with Metcom, they dispatch first responders everywhere in the County except Bloomington.
