The most thorough report, an extensive review of research on mouthwashes, comes from University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. Professors Valerie O’Donnell and David Thomas explain that the SARS-CoV-2 virus (and other respiratory viruses) are surrounded by a fatty membrane. This can be disrupted by soap or detergents, which is why hand washing is so important. There are many common chemicals which also have this effect.  In an abstract from the International Association of Dental Research meeting in 2010, industry-sponsored researchers showed that a 30 second exposure to 21.6% ethanol with essential oils (Cool Mint Listerine, which contains eucalyptol, menthol, thymol and methyl salicylate) led to >99.99% reduction in a strain of H1N1 Influenza A in tissue culture. https://www.forbes.com/sites/judystone/2020/08/27/mouthwashes-are-a-ch


If you are being tested for the virus THE CDC  has  recommended to use a viral (nucleic acid or antigen) test to diagnose acute infection.


   The 03/16 /20 issue of  the  New York TImes has a diagram of the virus' outer ring of oily lipid molecules, which is broken apart by soap.                                       or read :  https://www.marketwatch.com/story/deadly-viruses-are-no-match-for-plain-old-soap-he res-the-science-behind-it-2020-03-08

 In 2016 New Jersey federal district judge Kevin McNulty cited Compagnie Francaise, among other cases, in holding that existing case law on quarantines was sufficient to sustain state officials' defense of qualified immunity in a suit against them brought by Kaci Hickox, a nurse quarantined for 80 hours after she showed a fever upon her return to Newark International Airport from Sierra Leone, where she had been treating victims of the 2014 Ebola outbreak. Judge Mcnulty  wrote in his opinion; "I do not find that prior quarantine case law establishes any unconstitutionality" in how she was dealt with,.

 

 US Supreme Court  Justice John Marshall Harlan wrote in the early 1900's about the police power of states to regulate for the protection of public health: “The good and welfare of the Commonwealth  of which the legislature is primarily the judge, is the basis on which the police power rests in Massachusetts,” Harlan said “upon the principle of self-defense, of paramount necessity,  a community has the right to protect itself against an epidemic of disease which threatens the safety of its members.”  The case involved required smallpox vaccinations
