A. An afflicted person under court ordered examination, treatment, monitoring, isolation or quarantine pursuant to this article may be released before the expiration of the period ordered by the court if the petitioner or the medical director of the designated institution or program upon advice and consent from the tuberculosis control officer or the officer's designee determines through an examination and evaluation of the afflicted person that the afflicted person no longer has active tuberculosis or no longer poses a substantial danger to another person or to the community and that release is deemed appropriate.
B. Notice of the discharge from the institution, facility or program shall be promptly given to the judge of the court that entered the court order. Without further court order the afflicted person may be released or discharged in accordance with the terms set forth in the treatment plan or court order.
C. On a finding of good cause the court may order a further hearing on a motion for early discharge or to amend or modify an existing court order pursuant to an affidavit of the petitioner or intervenor or the afflicted person or the afflicted person's attorney that states the need for further evidentiary hearing and the reasons the hearing is necessary before the time set for the release of the afflicted person.
