Section 2.33 - Removal of cases of communicable diseases from one health district to another restricted

2.33 Removal of cases of communicable diseases from one health district to another restricted. Except as hereinafter provided no person affected with a highly communicable disease (as defined in section 2.1 of this Part) shall be removed from one health district into another except with the permission of the city, county or district health officer from whose district such person is removed and the permission of the city, county or district health officer to whose jurisdiction such person is to be transferred. The former shall give permission only after securing the consent of the health officer to whose jurisdiction the person is to be transferred except that the latter's permission need not be obtained if the patient is brought into a municipality solely for hospitalization in an institution approved by that municipality's health officer for admission of the type of case in question. Such removal shall be by means of a private conveyance, in charge of a responsible person and conducted in such manner as to prevent the exposure of other persons to the patient.
