Updated TB testing policy July 1, 2017:
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:
  1. Your primary health care provider
  2. CVS Minute Clinic

Proof of TB clearance is mandated for volunteers working in public schools. Please submit written TB clearance signed by your health care provider to your school site. Again, thank you for your understanding and cooperation. And with your help, we look forward to another successful school year for 2017-18.
