Highlight of The Month

TB Highlight of the Month

  • This month's highlight features Resources for TB Screening and Testing of Health Care Personnel, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). On May 17, 2019, the CDC and the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association (NTCA) released ‚ÄúTuberculosis Screening, Testing, and Treatment of U.S. Health Care Personnel: Recommendations from the National Tuberculosis Controllers Association and CDC, 2019." The updated recommendations reflect the overall decrease of TB cases and the low incidence of TB among health care personnel in the United States due to occupational exposure.

    CDC developed supporting resources and tools, including:
    • Frequently Asked Questions
    • Baseline Individual TB Risk Assessment
    • Infographic: Updated Recommendations for Tuberculosis TB - Screening, Testing, and Treatment
    • Social Media Graphics
