26:4-53. Warrant, trial and commitment
A warrant may issue, and the matter may be disposed of without a jury, but upon oral testimony. If the court finds that the person is the carrier of such infective agent, and that he neglects or is unable so to conduct himself as not to expose the public to infection, it may commit the person to a county or municipal hospital or to any other suitable place or institution for the care of persons suffering from such disease. The court may also make any order for the care or treatment of the person which may be proper.

Amended by L.1953, c. 26, p. 475, s. 41.
