HIV is a fact of life, throughout the nation and around the world. It has now been more than 30 years since this pandemic started. Blaming others because we weren’t careful enough to dodge it when we actually do possess the tools to do so—that’s nothing short of a willful denial of reality.
People with HIV should be under no legal obligation whatsoever to tell anyone about their HIV status. It may be immoral for an individual to withhold that fact from a partner; he may be a coward and a devil and a horrible, horrible person. But he shouldn’t be a criminal. Because people without HIV have responsibilities, too.
