Section 11-116 Examinations of certain suspects; quarantine.


    When any person is arrested for being a prostitute, a keeper, inmate or frequenter of a house of ill fame, prostitution or assignation, or for lewd or lascivious conduct, such person shall be subjected to a physical examination by the health officer for the purpose of determining if such person is infected with a venereal disease in the infectious stage. If such examination should reveal that such person is suffering from and afflicted with a venereal disease in the infectious stage, such person shall be quarantined and detained in a place provided by the city until such time as such person is no longer capable of conveying such disease to others; provided, however, that any person so quarantined and detained may, at his option, be cared for at his own expense by his own physician.
