*Important Updates for CAVE Volunteers about TB Tests as of August, 2019*

Due to a national shortage of TB Tests, the Health Center currently has a limited supply of TB Tests.  They still can administer TB Assessments free for students.

How do I know whether I need a TB Assessment or a TB Test?

If you are volunteering in schools in Chico Unified you only need documentation of a negative TB Assessment within four years to be cleared by CAVE.

A TB Assessment is a survey to assess your risk of having TB.  The Student Health Center can perform the TB Assessment for free.

If you are working with older adults you need documentation of a negative TB Test within one year to be cleared by CAVE.  If you are volunteering in a school and have a positive TB Assessment, you will need documentation of a negative TB Test within four years. 

A TB Skin Test is administered by a health professional in two visits.  On the first visit the test is placed and you must return within 48-72 hours to have a health professional read the result.

Where can I get a TB Test if I can’t get one at the Health Center?

Currently, Butte County Public Health and Enloe Hospital still have TB Tests at a cost.  Please see the information below and get your TB Test done as soon as possible, as supplies may run out.
