Beginning November 14, 2018, Tuberculosis (TB) infection or latent TB infection will be reportable in Virginia among persons of any age and not just in children younger than four years of age. Diagnosing tuberculosis infection requires that active TB has been ruled out. Results of a test for TB infection (tuberculin skin test or interferon gamma release assay) as well as chest x-ray results and a lack of active TB symptoms should be included in morbidity reports. TB infection will also be added to the list of conditions reportable by laboratory directors.
