(ETH) – One county in South Texas isn’t playing around when it comes to the coronavirus and has come out issuing a warning that anyone who tests positive and refuses to self-isolate themselves could end up in jail according to a report from CBS DFW.


The warning comes from the Brooks Count Office of Emergency Management, which cites Texas Penal Code 22.05 (a) which states “A person commits an offense if he recklessly engages in conduct that places another in imminent danger of serious bodily injury.”

The report recently stated that “Someone who is positive for COVID-19 doesn’t even need to have infected another person either, according to the warning, to warrant an arrest. The exposure alone is enough for punishment.” The notice does not officially say how law enforcement would go about enforcing or verifying whether a violation has occurred or whether in fact, an individual is actually positive for coronavirus.
