Username: IrishMedic Comment: Delusional, incompetent people running the show don't understand the proper indications for air medical response. Was astounded when I was in this "department" for a good bit; even my volly EMS gig back in Liberty knew that the helicopter is a waste of resources when the hospital is 15 minutes around the coroner LOL! Pathetic!
HIPAA has clauses in which X is permitted, under law, to disclose to law enforcement, such as for "the reporting of certain types of wounds or other physical injuries," or "court order or court-ordered warrant, or a subpoena or summons issued by a judicial officer," or "for the purpose of identifying or locating a suspect, fugitive, material witness, or missing person," or when the patient(s) "is or is suspected to be a victim of a crime," or to notify law enforcement when "the covered entity believes in good faith constitutes evidence of criminal conduct that occurred on the premises of the covered entity," including emergencies, etc. (https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/45/164.512). These are, however, circumstances in which the covered entity - in this case, the clinic(s) - are not liable for disclosures; when the disclosures aren't considered unlawful. They aren't a mandate to openly report, which is usually done by court subpoena or through state law (mandatory abuse reporting, etc.).

covid-19 is just some spicy pneumonia that - really - isn't fatal i guarantee most of our characters on the server are in the 10-39 y/o range, with a very small amount being 40+ years old. i can also guarantee that no one - or one or two players, perhaps - roleplays any immunocompromising or respiratory-compromising condition, therefore making covid-19 really not lethal at all. therefore, no. as everyone else, who disagrees with this idea, has said: any sort of event in regards to a covid-19 outbreak would be inappropriate, not only because people are dying right now as im typing this, but because this wouldn't be roleplayed correctly, nor would we have sufficient resources to handle an outbreak.
