Annual tuberculin screening tests (also known as TST and PPD) and respirator FIT testing will begin on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
This year, new guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend annual tuberculin screening tests only for certain employees based on their occupational risk. Infection Prevention has identified areas with high risk that will require annual tuberculin screening (TST/PPD). Cooper employees who do not need a tuberculin screening test will still have to complete an in-person, written risk assessment in order to be compliant. When you arrive, the on-site Employee Health nurse will determine if you need a tuberculin screening test or a risk assessment.

If you do not see your location on a schedule, please be assured that Employee Health will be in contact with your manager to arrange for written risk assessments.
