Cuyahoga County Health Director Terry Allan should order the bodies of the three deceased judges to be autopsied.

Allan’s CoVid quarantine letter acknowledges R.C. 3707.08, but fails to advise the infected of their rights to be cared for at home

CLEVELAND, OHEJBNEWS obtained a copy of what Terry Allan in his capacity as Cuyahoga County’s health commissioner is sending to SARS-CoV infected residents.  He’s titled it an “Order of isolation for communicable disease patient” and lists the authority for it as Section 3707.08 of the Revised Code of Ohio.  The “patient” through Allan’s letter is ordered to isolate in their home or place of residence.

What’s in Allan’s letter is a set of instructions that resemble Title 3707 and not any of Governor Richard Michael DeWine, Dr. Amy Stearns-Actons, Mayor Frank Jackson and Cleveland city council’s “orders” and “ordinances.”  No social distancing.  No mask wearing.  No instructions to cancel family dinners and holidays.  Allan doesn’t even instruct patients to clean or sanitize their homes and residences. He makes no reference whatsoever to the board of health’s November 18, 2020 through December 28, 2020 “advisories” and “encouragements.”

There’s no mandatory 14-day sheltering in place.  There are zero instructions from Allan in his letter for the infected patient to share news that they’re CoVid infected or exposed with the people they were around.  Allan does not advise patients that DeWine is going to release their privacy protected health information to “first responders” or unconstitutionally close businesses.  His letter makes no reference whatsoever to Drama Queen DeWine’s orders; as the substance of his letter clearly contradicts the governor’s histrionic lunacy.

Allan instructs patients to remain in isolation until “any” CoVid 19 related symptoms have improved; they’ve been fever free for 24-hours; and at least 10 days have passed since the first symptoms.  On their own the patient is instructed to return to normal activities after they meet “all” of the above conditions.

Allan warns the patient that if they leave isolation before meeting all the criteria he’s outlined, “action will be taken under Sections 3701.57, 3707.48 and 3707.53 of the Revised Code of Ohio.  The letter doesn’t explain how he’ll know if his instructions are violated.   They’re warned they could also face criminal sanctions.

R.C. 3701.57 gives the health director the authority to commence prosecutions for violations of his orders.  R.C. 3707.48 is a prohibition on violating orders from the board of health that says nothing about  those coming from a mayor or governor.  R.C. 3707.53 tells the patient no deposit is required for prosecutions under the laws referenced in Allan’s letter.

A full and complete copy of Title 3701 or 3707 of the Revised Code of Ohio is not attached to Allan’s letter.  Patients are not advised that more laws exist within Title 37 that are relative to their isolation.  He doesn’t direct them where to read more for those who want to know more.  Patients were instructed only to contact the county’s health board during normal business hours.

How they afford to live and obtain food is of no concern to Allan in his letter; though it is a concern addressed in R.C. 3707.14.  Maintenance of persons confined in quarantined house.

“When a house or other place is quarantined because of contagious diseases, the board of health of the city or general health district shall provide, for all persons confined in such house or place, food, fuel, and all other necessaries of life, including medical attendance, medicine, and nurses when necessary. The expenses so incurred, except those for disinfection, quarantine, or other measures strictly for the protection of the public health, when properly certified by the president and clerk of the board, or health commissioner if there is no board, shall be paid by the persons quarantined, when able to make such payment, and when not, by the municipal corporation or township in which quarantined.”  Effective Date: 10-01-1953.”

While the letter from Allan says little about the other laws surrounding those he cited, he’s to be credited for the follow-up that comes from county health employees.  Their contact with CoVid infected patients is daily.  They’re asked how they’re doing and if there’s anything they need.  It appears the follow-up call is Allan’s way of complying with R.C. 3707.07.   The heading is “Complaint concerning prevalence of disease – inspection by health commissioner.

“When complaint is made or a reasonable belief exists that an infectious or contagious disease prevails in a house or other locality which has not been reported as provided in section 3707.06 of the Revised Code, the board of health of a city or general health district shall cause such house or locality to be inspected by its health commissioner, and on discovering that such disease exists, the board may send the person diseased to a hospital or other place provided for such person, or may restrain him and others exposed within such house or locality from intercourse with other persons, and prohibit ingress and egress to or from such premises.  Effective Date: 10-01-1953.”

The individuals with whom I’ve spoken shared that county workers did not offer to disinfect their homes and apartments.  Food, fuel, medical attendance and medicine was not offered.  It was not shared with any of the patients I spoke with that their sustenance by the county or “state” was a right provided in an unsuspended general law.

You can’t care for people you ridicule. Terry Allan chose Buckwheat instead of Dr. George Washington Carver to emulate as the fictitious television show character more reflected his consciousness. An American Negro who figured out 326 ways to use a peanut Allan’a ancestors only ate was too far above his level of thinking.

Allan’s letter does not also reference the “advisory” the health board issued.  Neither the Constitution of the United States of America nor the Constitution of Ohio have been suspended.  Nor have any federal, state or local laws.  The health board’s letter treads lightly in those areas by making their instructions nothing more than unenforceable recommendations.  People are “encouraged” not to gather from November 18, 2020 until December 17, 2020.  Allans’ letter is written narrowly to conform with the duties imposed on his office in the Ohio Revised Code that also gave and limits the authority of the public office he holds.  He’s not authorized by R.C. 3707.48 to do anything other than obey the Revised Code.

“No person shall violate sections 3707.01 to 3707.50 or section 3707.53 of the Revised Code, or any order or regulation of the board of health of a city or general health district made in pursuance thereof, obstruct or interfere with the execution of such order, or willfully or illegally omit to obey such order.”  Amended by 130th General Assembly File No. 12, SB 26, §1, eff. 5/28/2013.  Effective Date: 10-01-1953 .

The 1st Amendment of the United States of America did not go away.  Neither did the 2nd Amendment, 3rd Amendment 4th and 14th Amendments. Allan’s letter appears to focus on his enforcing R.C. 3707 and not DeWine, Jackson and Armond Budish’s “orders” and “advisories.”  Moore v. East Cleveland 1974, a Supreme Court of the United States of America case that struck down a city ordinance describing who could live in a home as a family, is final whether DeWine, Jackson and Budish have read it or not.

The measured tone of Allan’s correspondence as a medical professional does not match the “hype” coming from politicians with no upper management level medical training or insights at all.  He refers to the contagious disease as nothing more than CoVid-19.  No symptoms are offered beyond a “fever.”  Not even chills, aches, fever, a runny nose or a cough.  Not even difficulty in breathing.

The letter also offers no care advice.  That’s even the same from the board of health’s encouragements and advisories.  The county and city employees “real” physicians and knows the majority of the residents have no medical care.  The free municipal Hill-Burton Act funded hospitals have been destroyed.  The letter appears to assume the “patient” it’s addressed to is under some professional care.

At a minimum the county’s “patient” correspondence from the health board and commissioner should include some basic level medical guidance.  Take multi-vitamin supplements with minerals daily.  Particularly Zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin D.  Avoid mucous generating foods that moisten and inflame the lungs.  Drink over a half gallon to a gallon of water daily.  Add supplements that enhance the immune system and stimulate “apoptosis.”

The net effect of Allan’s lettered words are “stay at home sick and suffering until you’re healed or go to jail.”

The minimalist nature of Allan’s letter gives the impression he understands “coronavirus” is the medical term for the “seasonal common cold” and the term “CoVid” is the truncation of “corona virus.”  To truncate is to abbreviate.

Allan also knows the seasonal common cold turns into a bad case of the flu for people with pre-existing conditions and immune-weakened, vitamin and mineral deficient bodies.  The medical term for the flu is “Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome” also known as “SARS” in its truncated form.  Medical scientists truncate all that into the term “SARS-CoV.”

Reporters came up with the term “CoVid 19.”  They also came up with term “high speed chase.”  R.C. 2935.03 identifies high speed chases as “warrantless pursuits.”  Website owners are getting rich panicking readers over CoVid 19 from last year.  We’re already in CoVid 20 headed for CoVid 21 and they’re behind.

Eric Jonathan Brewer

Cleveland's most influential journalist and East Cleveland's most successful mayor is an East Saint Louis, Illinois native whose father led the city's petition drive in 1969 to elect the first black mayor in 1971. Eric is an old-school investigative reporter whose 40-year body of editorial work has been demonstrably effective. No local journalist is feared or respected more.

Trained in newspaper publishing by the legendary Call & Post Publisher William Otis Walker in 1978 when it was the nation's 5th largest Black-owned publication, Eric has published and edited 13 local, regional and statewide publications across Ohio. Adding to his publishing and reporting resume is Eric's career in government. Eric served as the city's highest paid part-time Special Assistant to ex-Cleveland Mayor Michael R. White. He served as Chief of Staff to ex-East Cleveland Mayor Emmanuel Onunwor; and Chief of Communications to the late George James in his capacity as the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority's first Black executive director. Eric was appointed to serve as a member of the state's Financial Planning & Supervision Commission to guide the East Cleveland school district out of fiscal emergency and $20 million deficit. Former U.S. HUD Secretary Alphonso Jackson told Eric in his D.C. office he was the only mayor in the nation simultaneously-managing a municipal block grant program. Eric wrote the city's $2.2 million Neighborhood Stabilization Program grant application. A HUD Inspector General audit of his management of the block grant program resulted in "zero" audit findings.

As a newspaper publisher, Eric has used his insider's detailed knowledge of government and his publications to lead the FBI and state prosecutors to investigations that resulted in criminal prosecutions of well-known elected officials in Ohio; and have helped realign Cleveland's political landscape with the defeat of candidates and issues he's exposed. Eric's stories led to the indictments of the late Governor George Voinovich's brother, Paul Voinovich of the V Group, and four associates. He asked the FBI to investigate the mayor he'd served as chief of staff for public corruption; and testified in three federal trials for the prosecution. He forced former Cuyahoga County Coroner Dr. Elizabeth Balraj to admit her investigations of police killings were fraudulent; and to issue notices to local police that her investigators would control police killing investigations. Eric's current work has resulted in Cuyahoga County Judge John Russo accepting the criminal complaint he guided an activist to file against 24 civil rights-violating police officers in the city he once led for operating without valid peace officer credentials. USA Today reporters picked up on Eric's police credentials reporting from his social media page and made it national.

Eric is the author of of his first book, "Fight Police License Plate Spying," which examines the FBI and local police misuse of the National Crime Information Center criminal records history database. An accomplished trumpet player and singer whose friendship with Duke Fakir of the Four Tops resulted in his singing the show's closing song, "Can't Help Myself": Curtis Sliwa of New York's Guardian Angels counts Eric among his founding chapter leaders from the early 1980's role as an Ohio organizer of over 300 volunteer crime fighters in Cleveland, Columbus and Youngstown, Ohio. For his work as a young man Eric was recognized by Cleveland's Urban League as it's 1983 Young Man of the Year.

Known in Cleveland for his encyclopedic knowledge of government and history, and intimately-connected with the region's players, every local major media outlet in Cleveland has picked up on one of Eric's stories since 1979. There is no mainstream newspaper, television or radio outlet in Cleveland that does not include an interview with Eric Jonathan Brewer in its archives over the past 40 years.
