Question: Is it illegal to not tell someone you have HIV in California?

A person living with HIV is not required to disclose their HIV-positive status when stopped by the police nor do they have to report what medications they might be taking.

Do you legally have to tell someone if you have HIV?

Many states and some cities have partner-notification laws—meaning that, if you test positive for HIV, you (or your healthcare provider) may be legally obligated to tell your sex or needle-sharing partner(s). In some states, if you are HIV-positive and dont tell your partner(s), you can be charged with a crime.
