TB Services & COVID-19
Provincial TB Services (TBS) is committed to providing appropriate, timely and safe care to British Columbians. In response to COVID-19, TBS will continue to see the highest priority TB patients:
- Virtual Care visits: For many patients, appointments will now be over the phone and not in person. Our intention is to, as much as possible, limit in-person clinic appointments.
- Rescheduled visits: For other patients, appointments may be cancelled or postponed.
- School & Work TB Screening: The BCCDC TB Clinics are not providing TB Skin tests for employment or educational programs at this time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding when referring patients to TBS. The BCCDC also has a TB and COVID-19 section.
The TB Screening Form is used by all BC health care providers to document pertinent clinical information required for Provincial TB Services to follow up and make recommendations appropriately.
