After his daughter tested positive for COVID-19, a Missouri man ignored a request to self-quarantine and instead took his daughter to a school dance.
The woman began feeling badly after returning from Italy two weeks ago. She was advised to get tested for COVID-19, and health officials told her and her family they should stay at home to be safe. She later tested positive for the virus. Nevertheless the patient’s father defied instructions to stay at home and went to a school function with another daughter. When health officials heard about what the man did, they warned him that if he ignored their request again, they would get a court order to force him and his family into isolation.
