a Federal offense who is sentenced to incarceration for a period of 6 
months or more to be tested for the presence of the human 
immunodeficiency virus, as appropriate, after the commencement of that 
incarceration, if such individual is determined to be at risk for 
infection with such virus in accordance with the guidelines issued by 
the Bureau of Prisons relating to infectious disease management.
    ``(b) If the Attorney General has a well-founded reason to believe 
that a person sentenced to a term of imprisonment for a Federal offense, 
or ordered detained before trial under section 3142(e), may have 
intentionally or unintentionally transmitted the human immunodeficiency 
virus to any officer or employee of the United States, or to any person 
lawfully present in a correctional facility who is not incarcerated 
there, the Attorney General shall--
            ``(1) cause the person who may have transmitted the virus to 
        be tested promptly for the presence of such virus and 
        communicate the test results to the person tested; and
            ``(2) consistent with the guidelines issued by the Bureau of 
        Prisons relating to infectious disease management, inform any 
        person (in, as appropriate, confidential consultation with the 
        person's physician) who may have been exposed to such virus, of 
        the potential risk involved and, if warranted by the 
        circumstances, that prophylactic or other treatment should be 

    ``(c) If the results of a test under subsection (a) or (b) indicate 
the presence of the human immunodeficiency virus, the Attorney General 
shall provide appropriate access for counselling, health

care, and support services to the affected officer, employee, or other 
person, and to the person tested.
    ``(d) The results of a test under this section are inadmissible 
against the person tested in any Federal or State civil or criminal case 
or proceeding.
    ``(e) <<NOTE: Deadline. Regulations.>> Not later than 1 year after 
the date of the enactment of this section, the Attorney General shall 
issue rules to implement this section. Such rules shall require that the 
results of any test are communicated only to the person tested, and, if 
the results of the test indicate the presence of the virus, to 
correctional facility personnel consistent with guidelines issued by the 
Bureau of Prisons. Such rules shall also provide for procedures designed 
to protect the privacy of a person requesting that the test be performed 
and the privacy of the person tested.''.

    (b) Clerical Amendment.--The table of sections at the beginning of 
chapter 301 of title 18, United States Code, is amended by adding at the
