Description:
Posters such as this one were designed during the mid-1980s to assuage public fears about the possibility of casual transmission of AIDS by touching door knobs, swimming in public pools, and drinking from water fountains. Such unfounded fears led to calls for mandatory testing for AIDS and quarantining AIDS carriers.. NOTE: Original slide is slightly blurry.
