Hofstra Law Review


Wendy E. Parmet


This Article, written in the early years of the AIDS epidemic, explored the historical evolution of the law of quarantine in an attempt to uncover its development through prior understandings of disease, science, and the relationship between the individual and the state. The Article then took initial steps toward placing the law of quarantine in the context of the then-current legal doctrine and analyzing its applicability to the early stages of the AIDS epidemic.
