Tuberculosis Control Program
Preble County Public Health is the designated Tuberculosis (TB) control agency for Preble County.
The TB control program's mission is to protect the residents of Preble County from tuberculosis. Public health functions include disease surveillance, case finding, epidemiologic analysis and contact tracing. TB tests are required by many employers and provide a screening tool to determine if someone has been exposed to the TB bacteria at some point in their life. It does not indicate active TB infection. If the TB Skin test is positive, a chest x-ray or other tests may be required. Because the skin test injection site must be checked by a nurse 48 to 72 hours after the test is administered, tests are givenon Mondays by appointment only.
