No person, who is suffering from a contagious or infectious disease or who has been exposed to a contagious or infectious disease, may be sent or admitted to a prison, jail, workhouse, infirmary, children's home, state hospital or institution for the blind, the mentally ill, or the mentally retarded, or a school for the blind or deaf, or other state or county benevolent institution without first making known the facts concerning the illness or exposure to the superintendent or other person in charge thereof.
