Tuberculosis Screening Guidance

All applicants 2 years old or older must have an interferon gamma release assay (IGRA)

Tuberculin skin testing (TST) can not be used as a substitute for IGRA testing.

All applicants with a positive IGRA, known human immunodeficient virus (HIV) infection, or signs or symptoms of tuberculosis disease, must have a chest radiograph (chest x-ray)
