Take Action on Kansas House Bill 2183!
In Kansas, could you be quarantined for being HIV-positive?
Our friends at the Positive Justice Project and Kansas Equality warn that a Kansas House Bill will broadly allow the quarantine of HIV positive people.
The original bill was meant to serve first responders who might be at risk of “occupational exposure” to HIV in their work.
The new bill will expand the authority of state and local health officials to quarantine people living with HIV:
- These measures allow open discrimination of people living with HIV by public officials lacking knowledge about HIV.
- Anyone can now claim “occupational exposure” to HIV and seek involuntary testing of the individual they claim exposed them.
Why do we need a quick response? The governor of Kansas is expected to sign this bill into law in a few days. Help people living with HIV in Kansas out by taking action now.
