The Health Department helps citizens receive testing for tuberculosis (TB). If a test is positive, the health department helps that person and all of their contacts, receive treatment and further testing. Children entering school for the first time may require a TB test if they have recently immigrated from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, or other countries with endemic tuberculosis.
TB testing is available by appointment only at the Public Health Clinic, 650 Newtown Pike. TB tests have a small fee, and Medicaid, cash, checks and credit cards are accepted. Please call (859) 288-2483 for an appointment and pricing.
