(a) During a public health emergency, the Yurok Public Health Officer may isolate or quarantine an individual or group of individuals. The Yurok Public Health Officer may also establish and maintain places of isolation and quarantine, including alternative care facilities, set rules, and make orders subject to YTC 11.10.160. The Yurok Public Health Officer may authorize health care providers, law enforcement, or emergency medical services personnel, or other access to individuals in isolation or quarantine as necessary to conduct their duties or meet the needs of isolated or quarantined individuals. No person, other than a person so authorized, shall enter isolation or quarantine premises. Any person entering an isolation or quarantine premises with or without authorization may also be subject to isolation, quarantine, or other control measure.
(b) When quarantine, isolation, or other control measures limit the freedom of movement of a person or limits access to a person whose freedom of movement is limited, the period of limited freedom of movement shall not exceed 30 calendar days. If the Yurok Public Health Officer determines that quarantine, isolation, or other control measures need to continue for more than 30 calendar days, he or she shall file a petition in the Yurok Tribal Court seeking a court order that authorizes the continuation of quarantine, isolation, or other control measures for the individual or group of individuals for a period of time not to exceed an additional 30 days, though the Yurok Public Health Officer can move to continue the order for successive periods not to exceed 30 days each.
