What States require partner notification?
Nov 9, 2000
While the practice of safe sex is of course important for everyone, I know that some states, such as Ohio, require HIV+ people to notify potential partners before having sex. What states have such laws? Can you offer any insight about these laws; their enforcement history, etc.?

Your question is a good one and requires much more information than the workplace forum can provide. The laws vary state-by-state. I suggest contacting an AIDS service organization in your area for the laws in your state.
