(a) Voluntary isolation or quarantine should always be used as a first option unless the Yurok Public Health Officer has determined in their professional judgment that:
(1) Seeking voluntary compliance would create a risk of serious harm;
(2) There is reason to believe that the person or group of persons is, or is suspected to be, infected with, exposed to, or contaminated with a communicable disease or chemical, biological, or radiological agent that could spread to or contaminate others if remedial action is not taken; and
(3) There is reason to believe that the person or group of persons would pose a serious and imminent risk to the health and safety of others if not detained for purposes of isolation or quarantine (for example if the person or group is not heeding voluntary isolation or quarantine orders).
(b) The Yurok Public Health Officer when conducting, ordering, authorizing, or otherwise approving voluntary isolation or quarantine will make reasonable efforts to comply with YTC 11.10.160, Conditions and principles for isolation or quarantine.
(c) The Yurok Public Health Officer shall provide copies of the written involuntary isolation or quarantine order to the person or group of persons detained or, if the order applies to a group and it is impractical to provide individual copies, post copies in a conspicuous place on the premises where isolation or quarantine has been imposed.
(d) Along with the written order, and by the same means of distribution, the Yurok Public Health Officer shall provide the person or group of persons detained with the written notice of the right to petition the Yurok Tribal Court for release from isolation or quarantine in accordance with YTC 11.10.190 and contact information of the Yurok Tribal Court.
