In the absence of the filing of a report pursuant to Section 7510 or a request pursuant to Section 7512, the chief medical officer may order a test of an inmate if he or she concludes there are clinical symptoms of
HIV infection, AIDS, or hepatitis B or C, as recognized by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the State Department of Health Services.
A copy of the decision shall be provided to the inmate, and where the inmate is a
minor, to the parents or guardian of the minor, unless the parent or guardian of the
minor cannot be located. Any decision made pursuant to this section shall not be appealable to a three-member
panel provided for under Section 7515.
