TB Clinic Information

Thank you so much for your dedication and diligence in the work you do for our schools. We love our volunteers because they contribute so much time and energy to our students and staff. Our schools would not be what they are without you.
 
We wanted to notify you of a change in the required tuberculosis testing for school volunteers effective July 1, 2017. Due to new regulations from both the state and county, PUSD nurses will no longer be providing TB clearance. If you are due for your screening (once every four years), we are hoping this advance notification will give you ample time over the summer to comply, before the start of the new school year.
 
The law requires that TB clearance be completed by a licensed health care provider. The provider will determine if risk factors exist and provide a TB test, if needed.
 
Here are a few nearby resources where you can obtain TB clearance. There may be a fee or co-pay involved at some locations:

Again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation. And with your help, we look forward to another successful school year for 2017-18.
