School Guidance Letter (July 2018)
Ben Franklin TB Control Program:

The Ben Franklin TB control Program provides TB education, outreach, guidance and direct care services for active TB disease patients and their contacts in Franklin County. We also evluate and treat Federal Division of Quarantine referral patients for active TB disease and Latent TB Infection (LTBI). The TB Program can assist providers in guidance about TB protocols related to employee TB screenings and in conducting TB screenings, chest x-ray follow up, and LTBI treatment regimens for their patient populations.

  • Latent TB Infection (LTBI) - Guidance for Providers
    Contact the TB Program for treatment and case management guidance for people being treated for LTBI at (614) 645-2199. We do provide LTBI direct care services for infected contacts of active TB cases and Division of Quarantine patients only. Cases of LTBI are not considered reportable to your local health department.
  • TB as a Reportable Disease
    Active TB disease is a Class B reportable disease. Any positive lab result concerning TB, any suspect TB case or a confirmed case of active TB needs to be reported to your local health department by the end of the next business day. You can contact us at (614) 645-1823 to report a confirmed or suspect TB case by phone and/or fax us the information at (614) 645-8669 using the Active/Suspect TB Case Referral form. For more information, please call (614) 645-1823.
