Notre Dame Hires Private Security to Make Sure Quarantined Students Don’t Leave Home

It’s astounding that students are paying to be treated this way. Would you want to live like this?

Notre Dame hires security to make sure quarantined students don’t leave home

The University of Notre Dame has taken new measures to ensure that students who are supposed to be in quarantine remain in quarantine without disruption.

According to the South Bend Tribune, after some students were caught breaking the school’s new COVID-19 guidelines and leaving their quarantine or isolation location, Notre Dame hired security to specifically monitor students in quarantine.

The university contracted the new security personnel from the Monterrey and VSS Security groups to keep an eye on the quarantined students around the clock. It is also partnering with the Indiana State Police Alliance, which will have troopers keep watch overnight until 3:30 a.m.

University spokesman Dennis Brown told the South Bend Tribune that the specific localities of the security will be based on each property they are assigned to and that the officers are monitoring to see if students who are under quarantine are leaving their rooms. He also added that for those who do violate the guidelines, a disciplinary process will begin.

Allegedly, those living in the university’s newest building received a letter that security measures would increase in their building due to the number of complaints of students going out against the school’s coronavirus guidelines.

One student, Megan O’Gorman, a junior who has been placed in quarantine, told the South Bend Tribune that she had to wait eight days to hear back that she tested negative and that the instructions given to her were unclear.

What do “keep an eye on” and “monitor” mean in this context?

Are these security people merely commissars who will report dangerous reactionaries who dare to make their own decisions? Or will they do something more concrete (which sounds like it would probably be illegal)?

The potential for abuse here is enormous.

ensure that students who are supposed to be in quarantine
Sorry, but if they aren’t sick, they aren’t in quarantine. They are under house arrest.

Why are people not resisting this with 4th and 5th Amendment lawsuits? How the he** do you put people under house arrest without due process? How do you shut down their businesses without an appropriate payment for ‘taking’?

    And I stand a little corrected….
    It’s really hard to tell from the quoted material, but at least one of the “quarantined” was there because of a potential infection. I’m unsure about the rest of them, as the language our “reporters” are using has been mangled by our Winnie The Flu response.
