The Aesop Substitute Management System will send employees an email notification 60 days prior to their TB results expiring.
Additionally, the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) Employee Information System will generate an email notification to an employee 30 days prior to TB results expiring. Supervisors will also get notification for their assigned employees.
AB 1667, which became effective on January 1, 2015, replaces universal TB testing for public school employees and volunteers with a TB Risk Assessment Questionnaire. If risk factors are identified on the questionnaire, a TB test would be required to determine that the employee is free of infectious tuberculosis. This will be more cost-effective while still protecting students, school employees, and volunteers from tuberculosis.
The TB risk assessment questionnaire is to be administered and signed by a licensed health care provider (physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, or registered nurse).
You must submit a completed questionnaire, or results from an actual TB skin test or blood test, to Human Resources prior to your current results expiring.
The district nurse provides regularly scheduled meeting times at the district office to employees that qualify for the questionnaire. Not everyone will qualify. In order to qualify, you will need to be able to answer “no” to all of the questions on the risk assessment (questionnaire). If an employee does not qualify it is still recommended that the employee meet with the district nurse to determine the next steps in the process, whether to schedule a visit with your primary care provider or nurse’s clinic, depending on your situation.
To schedule a virtual meeting email Margaret McLean.
