Georgia lawmaker asks about quarantining HIV patients

SeattlePI.com Friday, 20 October 2017
ATLANTA (AP) — A Georgia state lawmaker who is married to former U.S. health secretary Tom Price asked during a legislative committee meeting about the possibility of quarantining people with HIV. State Rep. Betty Price, a Republican whose district includes parts of Atlanta's northern suburbs, asked the head of the Georgia Department of Public Health's HIV Epidemiology Section at Tuesday's meeting about stopping the spread of HIV — the virus that causes AIDS. "What are we legally able to do? I don't want to say the quarantine word, but I guess I just said it," Price can be seen asking the official, Dr. Pascale Wortley, in a video of the study committee meeting on barriers to adequate health care.
