Does A Person With Hiv Have To Inform Their Partner Of Their Status?

Nevada Revised Statutes Annotated Section 201.205 provides that: A person who has received notice that he or she is HIV positive and who intentionally, knowingly or willfully engages in conduct in a manner that is intended to or is likely to transmit the disease to another person is guilty of a category B felony. This is punishable by imprisonment for at least 2 years but not more than 10, or by a fine of not more than $10,000, or by both fine and imprisonment. It is a defense to this offense that the person subject to exposure to HIV knew that the defendant was HIV positive, knew the conduct could result in exposure to HIV, and consented to engage in that conduct.
