Illinois Compiled Statutes

Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

No person shall be compelled to undergo an examination or test for tuberculosis if he or she objects thereto on the ground that it is contrary to his or her religious convictions, unless there is probable cause to suspect that he or she is infected with tuberculosis in a communicable stage.
    Boards of directors shall provide out-patient clinical and follow-up services to tuberculosis patients, in accordance with minimum standards prescribed therefor, by the director of the Department of Public Health.

    In cities and villages which have a population of less than 500,000 inhabitants, the board may also extend the privileges and use of the sanitarium to the inhabitants of such city or village who are afflicted with chronic pulmonary diseases other than tuberculosis, and inhabitants who are convalescent or chronically ill, or both, and provide care and treatment for such persons when part of the facilities of the sanitarium are vacant and not needed for care and treatment of tuberculosis inhabitants of such city or village, upon such terms and conditions as the board may prescribe by its rules and regulations, provided such facilities shall be separate so that tuberculosis patients shall be isolated from those afflicted with chronic pulmonary diseases other than tuberculosis, and those who are convalescent or chronically ill patients. However, if care and treatment is provided for such persons, the charge for providing such care and treatment shall not be less than the actual cost of providing such care and treatment.
    The board may use funds secured from taxes levied under the provisions of this Act in providing sanitarium care of tuberculosis patients in private or public sanitariums.
