  • School TB Screening Policy

    Effective July 1, 2012, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) has rescinded the universal TB testing requirement for children entering kindergarten or a California school for the first time. Instead, universal TB screening and risk-based testing has been incorporated into the existing CA State physical examination requirement for children entering first grade. Health providers, as part of this routine health assessment, should screen students and test them for TB only if a risk factor is present.
