Are all children required to have a Mantoux tuberculin test before starting school?

Posted by:

A Mantoux tuberculin test is required of students who were born in or transferring directly from certain countries outside the United States that have a high incidence of tuberculosis. Your school nurse will inform you if your child needs to have a Mantoux tuberculin test and when the test is due by. Please note: written documentation of the results of the Mantoux tuberculin test must be certified by an MD or RN to be accepted.
