DOJ/BOP RIN: 1120-AB69 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Infectious Disease Management: Voluntary and Involuntary Testing 

The Bureau of Prisons (Bureau) proposes to amend two minor revisions to its regulations on the management of infectious diseases. One change will propose to remove the requirement for HIV pre-test counseling for inmates, because the counseling requirement has become an obstacle to necessary testing. Inmates testing positive for HIV will continue to receive HIV post-test counseling. The second change proposes to alter language regarding tuberculosis (TB) testing to clarify that it is testing for the TB infection, but not skin testing, thereby accounting for advances in medical technology that allow for newer testing methods.
