|(a) All persons over the age of one year old must have
a documented tuberculosis screening that was conducted as recommended
by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) within 30 days before or
after beginning to live, work, or volunteer at your operation unless
(1) Has lived, worked, or volunteered at a regulated
residential child-care operation within the previous 12 months. For
example, an employee beginning employment in a regulated residential
child-care operation for the first time would need a baseline tuberculosis
screening. Employment in a different residential child-care operation
would not require a new screening, as long as documentation in paragraph
(2) of this subsection is also provided. If the employee left employment
in regulated residential child-care for more than 12 months and then
returned, a new screening would be required; and
(2) Provides documentation of a tuberculosis screening.
(b) Documentation must consist of a copy of the results
of the baseline tuberculosis screening or chest radiograph, which
must be in the person's record at your operation within 40 days of
the person beginning to live, work, or volunteer at your operation.
Documentation of a copy of the results of treatment (if treatment
is required) must also be maintained in the person's record. For a
child in DFPS conservatorship, documentation in the child's health
passport is sufficient.
(c) Except on the advice of a physician, no additional
screening is required for a person who continues to live, work, and/or
volunteer in a regulated residential child-care setting.
