This program offers tuberculosis (TB) testing to high risk clients in corrections, refugees, migrants, homeless persons, persons who have lived in TB endemic countries, and persons that are contacts of an active TB case.  Some individuals may need TB testing required for employment.  Routine TB testing of the general population is not necessary nor recommended.

If results are positive, individuals are referred to their primary provider for evaluation and medication orders.  Medication for treatment of latent TB infection and TB disease is available, free of charge to individuals with these conditions.
