ONEIDA, N.Y. – Oneida city police have arrested a resident for failing to follow a mandatory quarantine order after testing positive for coronavirus.

The person, whose name will not be released due to HIPAA laws, has been charged with criminal contempt for not self-isolating after multiple warnings.

According to police, the person has been arrested several other times over the past six weeks, but was released with an appearance ticket each time under new bail reform laws.

The other charges include:

  • Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle
  • Criminal mischief
  • Menacing with a weapon
  • Two counts of criminal contempt

Oneida city police said the following in the Facebook post regarding this arrest:

“However, we wanted the community to be aware and understand that while we are committed to keeping our community safe, and will continue to enforce all laws, our hands have been bound by the bail ‘reforms’, thus allowing irresponsible and selfish people like this to continue to pose risks and dangers to our communities.”
