    TB Screening / Testing Info:

    OSHA requires our students to be screened for TB. THIS IS NOT AN OPTION! 


    In accordance with the Loudoun County Program of Studies, “Proof of tuberculosis (TB) testing is required. Students are responsible for getting TB testing prior to the start of the school year.”  Written proof of a negative TB screening/test, signed by a health care professional, as documentation must be turned in by 9/15/2021.  Only a health care provider can determine whether your student needs the screening or the actual TB skin test or x-ray. 


    For your information:  The Ashburn clinic of the Loudoun County Health Department provides tuberculosis screenings.  
    Ashburn Clinic
