Default CDC: Americans infected with coronavirus or in quarantine can still vote in person!

Americans infected with coronavirus or in quarantine can still vote in person, CDC says
Godspeed, poll workers!

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave the green light for coronavirus-positive voters to cast a ballot in person on Election Day — “regardless of whether they are sick or in quarantine.”

The new guidance, published Sunday on the agency’s website, says Americans “have the right to vote” no matter their medical condition, but it urges those who are infected to take precautions to prevent infecting those around them.

“Voters who are sick or in quarantine should take steps to protect poll workers and other voters,” the updated guidelines state. “This includes wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer before and after voting.”

But Trump rallies were evil and wicked and put the nation at risk.
But protesting is OK
Churches should be fined liked $35,000 and Businesses should be closed.... JUST IN CASE someone MIGHT have the disease..... Except for Wal-Mart.
Release people from jail to keep them from Covid But put them in jail if they don't obey Covid safety rules.

covid1984
"Mask Don't really help"... "You MUST wear mask".
war is peace freedom is slavery
Believe "the" scientist.... "the" Science is what we say it is... TODAY.

the gov't and media are full of Crap on this Covid1984.
They speak out of both sides of their mouths and i'm not going to pretend to take them seriously.
They are either liars, idiots or a bit of both.

Is this a shock to you? Voting is in the constitution.
You should not vote in person if you have the virus or are in quarantine, but you legally have the right to be
A. stupid, and
B. irresponsible
I imagine that in their wildest dreams they would never have encouraged it or at least without strong guidelines along with the statement, if not for the idiots occupying the whitehouse.
Trump never should have fired Kelly.

That it's A-OK for Covid1984 positive sick people to leave Quarantine to Vote becasue voting is constitutional right? As long as they follow "guidelines" mask-6ft-washhands?

I am saying that if this report is true, Trump's minions or Trump himself made them put that out there to be another technically legal thing that they should not do.
Who facked with the CDC and in fact made every government employee fear for their job? hmmm?

Default Re: CDC: Americans infected with coronavirus or in quarantine can still vote in perso

as far as it being true here's the CDC Website
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...ting-tips.html

And the text from the page:
"6 Steps – The day you vote
The more prepared you are, the more you reduce your risk of getting and spreading COVID-19.

Voters have the right to vote, regardless of whether they are sick or in quarantine.
Voters who are sick or in quarantine should take steps to protect poll workers and other voters. This includes wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and washing your hands or using hand sanitizer before and after voting. You should also let poll workers know that you are sick or in quarantine when you arrive at the polling location. Check with local authorities for any additional guidance."

And here's the page with Guidelines about quarantine.
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...uarantine.html
which talks about quarantine even if you ARE NOT sick just exposed to someone who had it.

Here's the page talking about what to do if you ARE sick.
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...when-sick.html
"Stay home except to get medical care
Stay home. Most people with COVID-19 have mild illness and can recover at home without medical care. Do not leave your home, except to get medical care. Do not visit public areas.
Take care of yourself. Get rest and stay hydrated. Take over-the-counter medicines, such as acetaminophen, to help you feel better.
Stay in touch with your doctor. Call before you get medical care. Be sure to get care if you have trouble breathing, or have any other emergency warning signs, or if you think it is an emergency.
Avoid public transportation, ride-sharing, or taxis..."

And there's the page about how long to stay home AFTER you're sick.
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019...-its-safe.html

Salt, bottom line is, the CDC rules are ARBITRARY.
"STAY HOME! ...um unless you have a constitutional right to uh well... vote.. "

But constitutional right to work? go to church? travel?

Look, common sense says anyone that KNOWS they are sick with the virus, (practically ANY contagious virus) should stay home.
the CDC, Facui and gov't recommendations should NOT be taken as the gospel truth. People need to make their own medical decisions based on the best info they can find becasue the gov't is talking out of both sides of it's mouth.
Even based on what you say Salt, the gov't experts/pronouncements can't be trusted becasue you say they are acting out of fear of their bosses. NOT on the science. Bosses, be they at the White house or the heads of the CDC or wherever. The CDC workers are doing what will keep their jobs. Why should we ever trust what they say?
---"Um... well... Yesterday, i was lying so i would keep my job but today I'm just talking about what's best for you."---

sorry my trust is BLOWN. Your millage may vary Salt, but I'm done "trusting".

BTW you might want to also note that they admit that most people have only a mild sickness that require ZERO medical intervention. Mainly rest.
That's one item that's been consistent from various sources.


covid1984, though deadly for some, is NOT as horrible as it's been advertised.
Heck, you can go out and VOTE if you're sick with it!
