§ 2612. Salmonella Infections (Other Than Typhoid Fever).
(a) Any illness in which organisms of the genus Salmonella (except the typhoid bacillus) have been isolated from feces, blood, urine or pathological material shall be reported as a Salmonella infection. A culture of the organisms on which the diagnosis is established shall be submitted first to a local public health laboratory and then to the State Microbial Diseases Laboratory for definitive identification. The period of isolation in accordance with Section 2518 shall be until clinical recovery. The patient shall be subject to supervision by the local health officer who may require, at his discretion, release specimens of feces for testing in a laboratory approved by the State Department of Health Services.
However, no patient shall be released from supervision to engage in any occupation involving the preparation, serving or handling of food, including milk, to be consumed by individuals other than his immediate family, nor to engage in any occupation involving the direct care of children or of the elderly or of patients in hospitals or other institutional settings until two successive authentic specimens of feces taken at intervals of not less than 24 hours, beginning at least 48 hours after cessation of specific therapy, if any was administered, have been determined, by a public health laboratory approved by the State Department of Health Services to be negative for Salmonella organisms. (See Section 2534.)
(b) Carriers. Any person who harbors Salmonella organisms three months after onset is defined as a convalescent carrier and may be restricted at the discretion of the local health officer.
Any person continuing to harbor Salmonella organisms one year after onset is a chronic carrier. Any person who gives no history of having had Salmonellosis or who had the illness more than one year previously who is found to harbor Salmonella organisms on two successive specimens taken not less than 48 hours apart is also considered to be a chronic carrier.
Chronic carriers of Salmonella, other than S. typhosa, shall be restricted at the discretion of the local health officer.
(c) Contacts. Restrictions on contacts shall be at the discretion of the local health officer.
