Abstract:     
In their article, HHS/CDC Legal Response to Outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Misrahi, et al. (Emerg Infect Dis 2004:10:353–5.) describe the updated federal laws and response plans for handling SARS and related communicable diseases. Federal authority is important to control the interstate and international movement of persons who are potentially infectious, but most isolation and quarantine orders will be performed by state and local officials, using state and local law. We discuss how existing laws might be modified to facilitate effective SARS control while providing legal protections to restricted persons.
