Public Health is required to follow the Mandatory Blood Testing Act (2006) of Ontario. The Act permits anyone that may have come into contact with blood or body fluids of another person, as a result of being a victim of crime, an emergency service worker, or Good Samaritan (emergency first aid provider), to have the blood of the other person tested. The sample is tested for HIV, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
There are a number of requirements that have to be met before the Medical Officer of Health will accept the application and there are strict timelines that need to be followed.
