Pima County temporarily halts routine TB tests

TUCSON, Ariz. — Pima County is temporarily suspending routine tuberculosis
screenings starting next week.

County Health Department officials said the screenings normally offered at
clinics will be halted as of April 15.

They said the screenings are expected to resume once a national shortage of the
Tubersol solution for skin testing is resolved.

However, the County Health Department will continue testing people who have
symptoms of tuberculosis.

The screenings cost $15 per person regardless of insurance.
