The Tuberculosis (TB) and Communicable Disease Control Program staff work with medical providers, educate the public, and perform disease surveillance, investigations, and contact tracing to prevent the occurrence and spread of infectious disease and epidemics.
The TB Control Program evaluates, diagnoses, and treats latent (inactive) TB disease with free medication. The division also provides TB screening and education and monitors TB activity within the community. Skin testing is also available by appointment.
When an active case of TB is reported to the Health Department, program staff investigate to locate the source.
