Testing Health Care Workers for TB

Testing health care workers for TB

On May 17, 2019 the CDC issued updated recommendations for TB testing of health care personnel. For a succinct review of the updates and helpful resource materials, visit the CDC's TB Screening and Testing of Health Care Personnel page.

The CDC has also posted a two-and-a-half-minute video about the updated guidelines. Watch the updated guidelines video.

It's important to note that except for the TB testing recommendations, all other aspects of the 2005 CDC guidelines Preventing the Transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in Health Care Settings remain in effect.

If you have any questions about TB testing or the 2005 CDC guidelines, call the PA TB program at 717-787-6267.
