From Dan Bouck, Umpqua Valley Public Defender,

Oregon Health Authority Medical Isolation and Quarantine Bench Book, 2019

"I was just appointed on a medical commitment case. Client tested positive for COVID and doesn’t like the idea of being forced into quarantine. The rules are very similar to a civil commitment case. It is very likely we will start seeing these cases all over the state. The court gave me a copy of the bench book for these hearings."
