Revised Sample Forms: Mandatory Testing for Communicable Disease

Posted: April 23, 2020

Courtesy of the Galveston County Criminal DA’s Office, these forms replace the documents that office originally shared to compel the testing of an arrested suspect for COVID-19 under Health & Safety Code §81.050 (Mandatory Testing of Persons Suspected of Exposing Certain Other Persons to Reportable Diseases). The revised documents also include a new flow-chart guide for their use.

Anyone with questions about the process can contact Asst. CDA Brent Haynes at [email protected].
