Tuberculosis Program

Our Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program provides screenings to detect TB infection and monitors the presence of TB in Macon County. The TB test is read 48 hours after it is given. Tests and readings are conducted during TB hours (listed below). If there is an upcoming holiday, tests may not be given due to inability to read results within the appropriate timeframe. Please call for specific questions regarding this process. Case-management is provided for people with active TB cases. For more information, please call us (217) 423-6988 ext: 1318.
