For those who are making or have made changes to your TB screening program, what are you doing with non-treated LTBI staff who don't provide patient care and don't work in patient care areas.  We didn't included them (Admin, IT, etc.) in annual TB screening/testing requirements previously.  With CDC changes are facilities now including them in annual risk assessments.  Would like to hear what others are doing if you can share.

I've been waiting for the CDC to publish the companion document they have but am having to move forward with changes for our facility.  We'll include them in annual risk assessments going forward.

Thank you,
