I would link the free participant / no treat Covid-19 waiver to the State ID, like an organ donor. So it would be linked like that.

It would have to very strictly enforced.

No Covid-19 Treatment means just that. In exchange for freedom of participation, there are no medical options for that individual presenting with the virus. 100% NO. Just mortuary arrangements if the need unfortunately arose.

But, just as strict is the stay at home for the people who opt to out of stay @ home. No messing about. There will be penalties for violations.

As dystopian as this all sounds, It would be interesting to see how it would work...
