Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    (410 ILCS 325/5) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 7405)
    Sec. 5. Contact investigation. (a) The Department shall adopt rules authorizing interviews and its authorized representatives may interview, or cause to be interviewed, all persons infected with a sexually transmissible disease and all persons whom the Department reasonably believes may be infected with such disease for the purpose of investigating the source and spread of the disease and for the purpose of ordering a person to submit to examination and treatment as necessary for the protection of the public health and safety.
    (b) All information gathered in the course of contact investigation pursuant to this Section shall be considered confidential and subject to the provisions of Section 8 of this Act. Such information shall be exempt from inspection and copying under The Freedom of Information Act, as amended.
    (c) No person contacted under this Section or reasonably believed to be infected with a sexually transmissible disease who reveals the name or names of sexual contacts during the course of an investigation shall be held liable in a civil action for such revelation, unless the revelation is made falsely or with reckless disregard for the truth.
    (d) Any person who knowingly or maliciously disseminates any false information or report concerning the existence of any sexually transmissible disease under this Section is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
