just discovered roommate has AIDS

I recently rented out a room to a guy, who 3 weeks after moving in told me he was HIV+...which "has progressed to AIDS". Since I am straight, there is no chance of a health risk...right??? Needless to say, this makes me ( and the few friends I have confided in) a bit nervous, and VERY uncomfortable. I feel bad for this kid, but he has nonetheless put me in a very awkard position. I mean, am I obligated to tell my girlfriends when they come over? or do I hope nobody finds out? This sucks.
