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 325/7

    (410 ILCS 325/7) (from Ch. 111 1/2, par. 7407)
    Sec. 7. Quarantine and isolation. (a) Subject to the provisions of subsection (b) of this Section, the Department may order a person to be isolated or a place to be quarantined and made off limits to the public to prevent the probable spread of a sexually transmissible disease, until such time as the condition can be corrected or the danger to the public health eliminated or reduced in such a manner that no substantial danger to the public's health any longer exists.
    (b) No person may be ordered to be isolated, and no place may be ordered to be quarantined, except with the consent of such person or owner of such place or upon the order of a court of competent jurisdiction and upon proof by the Department, by clear and convincing evidence, that the public's health and welfare are significantly endangered by a person with a sexually transmissible disease or by a place where there is a significant amount of sexual activity likely to spread a sexually transmissible disease, and upon proof that all other reasonable means of correcting the problem have been exhausted and no less restrictive alternative exists.
    (c) This Section shall be considered supplemental to the existing authorities and powers of the Department, and shall not be construed to restrain or restrict the Department in protecting the public health under any other provisions of the law.
    (d) Any person who knowingly or maliciously disseminates any false information or report concerning the existence of any sexually transmissible disease in connection with the Department's power of quarantine and isolation is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor.
