- Tell your sex partner(s) that you have tested positive. If you need assistance with partner notification, Washtenaw County Public Health can help. Partner notification is done to connect individuals to testing and treatment, to provide accurate information about any potential infections and to prevent additional transmission. Confidentially is maintained.

Partner notification services are available to help individuals diagnosed with HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases provide information to their partner or partners. When someone is diagnosed with HIV or another sexually transmitted disease (STD), their sexual partner or partners also need accurate information, testing and support.
