If a positive HIV test result is obtained, the person or government entity that performs the test, must report within 7 days to the State Department of Public Health, the name and address of the test subject, the name of the person administering the test, the name of the person reporting the results, the type of test performed and the test result.  Additionally, information about the test subject’s date of birth, race, sex, address and phone number must be reported. 

If the test is performed in a physician’s private practice, the test subject has the right to request that the physician not report his or her name, address or telephone number to the Department. 

Local health departments cannot maintain lists of HIV infected patients, but rather must have individual case files that are encoded to protect the identities of the individuals.
