Legislative Updates

Assembly Bill 1667

AB 1667 is now in effect and amends Education Code 49406, including sections of the Health and Safety Code. This law replaces the requirement for universal Tuberculosis (TB) testing of school employees with universal risk assessment.

A questionnaire is administered by a health professional as outlined in the bill, and if no TB risk factors are identified, a Certificate of Completion is issued to the employee. If TB risk factors are identified, the person must submit to a TB examination (approved intradermal test) to determine that the person is free of infectious Tuberculosis.

The TB risk assessment will be completed every 4 years, as described above. If the TB test is positive, the person will be referred for a chest x-ray to rule out infectious Tuberculosis.
