Exercise of quarantine powers of board by commissioner.

All powers and authority as to the declaration and imposition of quarantines granted in Section 2-25-4 to the board may be exercised by the commissioner, acting independently of the board, during the intervening time between the meetings of the board; provided, that when the same are exercised by the commissioner, such quarantines shall be subject to review by the board, which shall have the power to revoke or annul the same; but, until so revoked or annulled by the board, all such quarantines of the commissioner shall be held legal and binding and of full force and effect.
