Florida is among the states that require people with AIDS or who carry HIV, the virus that produces the deadly disease, to register with the public health department for monitoring purposes. The list is highly confidential...
I'd say apparently not. :(

The list is highly confidential, and releasing the identities of those on the HIV/AIDS list is a crime, Malecki said.

No, so the gov health service goons can harrass them. Demand lists of all sexual partners, grill 'em over blood exposure incidents, if they've given or received blood; that sort of thing. And this isn't new; health departments have long done the same thing with pretty much all STD patients. Odds are your personal doctor is required to report you if you have an STD.

People got upset over that model health act being pushed for bioterrorism, but it was only an extension of what has been going on for a long time.

I just hate the idea of my personal medical info being available for perusal by non-medical types. It isn't the government's business. I pay for my health insurance so they should just fook off.  :angry:
