My name is XXXXX XXXXX I'd be happy to answer your questions today. California state law requires that the following STDs be reported to the health department:
    • Gonorrhea
    • Syphilis (infections, latent (early & late), late stages & congenital)
    • Chlamydia
    • Chancroid
    • Non-gonococcal urethritis
    • Pelvic inflammatory disease
    • AIDS
    • HIV
    • Viral Hepatitis (A,B and C)
    • Amebiasis
    • Giardiasis
    • Cryptosporidiosis
    • Lymphogranulom venereum (LGV)
These STDs do not need to be reported:
    • Herpes genitalis
    • Trichomonas infection
    • Genital warts
    • Pubic lice ("crabs")
    • Granuloma inguinale
    • Cytomegalovirus
    • Scabies
Generally, if you have an STD, your doctor will encourage you to tell all of your partners who may have been exposed. Practically speaking, they can't know who that is, so it would be difficult to require it. However, if you knowingly expose a partner to an STD without informing him or her of the risk, you can be sued for damages and potentially charged with assault.

Relist: Answer quality.
I need to know about the laws that are in place for this not the information I was given I also found online. I am taking health and this is my assignment I feel that the quality of the answer is not quite what I needed..
