This resolution would urge the Legislature and the Governor to take actions to protect Californians’ right to make their own health and medical decisions. It also urges the Legislature to amend existing law in order to require the voluntary and informed consent of an individual or their guardian, and to authorize the consent’s withdrawal without prejudice, for any preventive, diagnostic, or therapeutic medical intervention taken by the State Department of Public Health to ascertain the nature of a contagious, infectious, or communicable disease and to prevent its spread.
