Current through March 4, 2022

(a) A chronic carrier of enteric disease shall be defined as a person who persists in excreting enteric pathogenic organisms for twelve months or more after onset of illness or probable date of infection or one who, though he may never have been known to have the disease, has been shown to harbor the infectious agent in his body.
(b) All specimens for the release of enteric carriers from supervision shall be collected at least ten days after the cessation of any antibiotic therapy or any therapy directed at the disease.
(c) All specimens for the release of enteric carriers from supervision shall be examined in conformity with subsection (f) of section 19a-36 -A8.
(d) Chronic carriers of the organisms causing typhoid fever and paratyphoid fever shall not be released from supervision until six successive specimens of urine and six successive specimens of feces, the last two of which shall be validated by collection of the specimen in a hospital or otherwise under direct supervision, have been found negative. Specimens for such examination shall be so collected that a time interval of not less than one month shall elapse between successive specimens of urine and between successive specimens of feces. The final two specimens of feces to be examined may be validated by the giving of lycopodium or a negative bile culture may be substituted for such validation.
(e) A chronic carrier of enteric disease excreting the organism in discharges other than the feces or urine shall not be released from supervision until negative cultures as outlined by the state department of health for the specific case have been obtained.
