Quarantines or embargoes provided for in subdivisions (4) and (5) of § 2-16-3 shall be established by the director only after a public hearing. Timely announcement of the hearing shall be given to interested persons by mail
or by two (2) announcements in newspapers serving the area affected. When in any case, in the opinion of the director, the delay necessary for the holding
of the hearing is likely to cause serious harm or would in any way seriously handicap
a control program, the director may establish a temporary quarantine, effective immediately
and remaining effective for a period not to exceed thirty (30) days, during which
thirty (30) day period a hearing shall be announced and held as stated above, and
the continuation and maintenance of this quarantine or embargo beyond the thirty (30)
day period shall be dependent on the hearing.
