Pinal County temporarily halting routine TB tests

FLORENCE, Ariz. — Pinal County is temporarily suspending routine
tuberculosis screenings.

County Health Department officials say the screenings normally offered at
clinics will be halted as of Friday.

They say 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.

Pima County temporarily suspended routine tuberculosis screenings on Monday,
also citing the Tubersol shortage.
