Michigan county threatens to arrest parents and take kids for possible covid contact.


“Now the Allegan County Health Director is threatening to take parents to court if the department has “reasonable belief” that their child has been exposed to COVID-19 and they don’t follow her every order. This could include actions by the county to take that child away from the parents and into the government’s custody. Allegan’s County Commission needs to step up and fire this reckless and tyrannical health director for threatening to take away people’s kids for possibly coming in close contact with someone who had COVID. This absolutely should not be happening in Allegan County”
