Assessment: Since the language of the bill refers to individuals or groups who “potentially” pose a threat, while underlining the governors’ and his/her delegates “discretion” to decide on the “appropriate measures,” basically anyone could be locked up in a medical or any other facility where he or she would be forcibly medicated.

Legislation introduced in New York proposes to grant the governor power to forcibly detain people infected with contagious diseases, those who have been in contact with those infected, or anyone suspected of presenting a “significant threat to public health.” In addition to that, state authorities could prescribe detained persons to receive any vaccinations or medical treatments deemed “necessary.”
