Utah County Tuberculous (TB) Screening Policy for Students

Utah County requires proof of tuberculosis testing for all foreign-born students (except those from Canada) entering schools for the first time, and students who have lived in a foreign country (except Canada) for six months or more within the past five years. 

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.
