Tuberculosis.

(1) Each staff person must provide documentation signed by a licensed health care professional of tuberculosis (TB) testing or treatment consisting of:
(a) A negative Mantoux test (also known as a tuberculin skin test (TST)) or negative interferon gamma release assay (IGRA) completed within twelve months before license application or employment; or
(b) A previous or current positive TST or positive IGRA with documentation within the previous twelve months:
(i) Of a chest X-ray with negative results; or
(ii) Showing that the individual is receiving or has received therapy for active or latent TB disease and is cleared to safely work in a child care setting. As used in this section, "latent TB" means when a person is infected with the TB germ but has not developed active TB disease.
(2) A TB test or chest X-ray may not be required if it is against the health care provider's advice. Documentation that includes a health screening must be signed by the health care professional and submitted that indicates the TB test or chest X-ray is not necessary.
