Tuberculosis Forms


After Survey Completion


After you complete the online tuberculosis screening survey, you’ll be prompted with further direction. If your survey results state that you are not at risk for TB, no further action is required.

If you answered “Yes” to any question on the survey, the following actions are required:

  1. Get a TB test to determine if you have been exposed to the disease. A simple TB skin test will tell if you have ever had TB germs in your body. The test is quick and easy, and does not hurt. See below for a listing of locations offering free to low-cost TB testing.

  2. Have your TB test results read by a medical professional and submit to STLCC. Within 48 to 72 hours after getting the skin test, you must return to the location that conducted your TB test have your results read.
