Amy Kauffmann started this petition to Citizens of Schoharie County

We, the signers of this petition, respectfully ask for the support of our town supervisors in requesting the Schoharie County Department of Health to immediately end the use of inappropriate quarantines.

Quarantines harm our children emotionally, academically and socially.  They must be used only when the evidence can show that the child poses a significant threat to public health, and that less restrictive measures cannot be used.

Our schools and school related events are designed to avoid the spread of COVID-19.  All evidence shows that these precautions, which we are diligently following, are working.  The quarantining of children who are not close contacts (within 6 feet for 15 minutes) of an infected person is a harmful and unnecessary practice.  We request that it be stopped immediately.

In addition, we request that our procedural right to due process be respected. If we, or our children, do not meet the criteria for close contact and are placed in a mandatory quarantine, we request the right to a timely appeal.  Citizens in other counties have been given this right and so must we. This must be corrected immediately.
