Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Checkyourfact.com: “FACT CHECK: Does The TRACE Act Allow The Government To Enter Homes, Test And Remove Family Members For COVID-19 Quarantine?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

An image shared on Facebook claims H.R. 6666 will allow government officials to enter homes, test and remove family members for quarantine.

Rush has refuted the claims that the bill allows forcible entry into homes and requires COVID-19 testing. The bill states individuals would quarantine in their homes.

Democratic Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush introduced H.R. 6666, also known as the Testing, Reaching, and Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Act on May 1.

The bill would create a $100 billion grant program “to fully mobilize coronavirus testing and contact tracking efforts” among local organizations such as community health centers and nonprofits, per a press release. It seeks to do so through funding the hiring, training and payment of individuals to run mobile testing sites and helping cover the costs of supplies for mobile testing, according to the Associated Press.

Since its introduction, multiple Facebook users have claimed the bill will also “give the government the power to forcibly remove your family from your home and quarantine them.” But that is incorrect. (RELATED: Does HR 6666 Require Microchips To Be Secretly Implanted During COVID-19 Tests?)
