    All you can do is try to persuade Bob to tell his fiance.

    You can not tell her.

    This subject interested me so I went to Columbia University's website and found that a physician must notify a health agent and that agent must notify the patient's contacts which would include Paula's friend.

    I am not sure if this is a universal policy but I thought it was interesting because I didn't think she could even say anything to Bob.
