Our TB incidence is very low and we now only do TB screening upon hire and post-exposure. Is it necessary  still keep a log of the positive TB screens? Is there a regulation for this? I can’t see the purpose of the log, which could easily track yearly conversions, if we don’t do annual screenings anymore.
