    Chapter 4: "Communicable disease" defined

      Section: 26:4-50: Examination of disease carriers

           Whenever the director or any local board shall have reason to believe that any person is the carrier of the infective agent of typhoid fever or paratyphoid fever and is unable or unwilling to conduct himself in such a manner as not to expose the public to danger of infection, the director or local board may request such person to submit to a medical examination for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not he is, in fact, the carrier of such infective agent. Every such person shall submit to an examination and permit such specimens of blood or bodily discharges to be taken for laboratory examination as may be necessary to establish the presence or absence of such infective agent.
