Hot Topic - Revised Tuberculosis (TB) School Mandate

Beginning June 1, 2014, the Santa Clara County Tuberculosis (TB) School Mandate will change from a requirement for universal TB testing to a requirement for universal TB risk assessment.

Prior to school enrollment children will be required to have their healthcare provider complete the Santa Clara County Public Health Department Risk Assessment for School Entry form. This requirement applies to all children enrolling in kindergarten or transferring, at any grade level, from outside of Santa Clara County.
