Utah County Tuberculous (TB) Screening Policy for Students

Utah County requires proof of tuberculosis testing for all students born in or those who have lived in any country with an incidence of >20 per 100,000. See https://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SH.TBS.INCD

A person can be infected with TB bacteria and not feel sick. In many cases, it is recommended to take medication(s) to prevent the bacteria from making an infected person sick with active TB disease.
