RESULTS

A negative skin test indicates that you are free from TB. A positive skin test means that at some point you have been exposed to the bacterium that causes TB. It does not necessarily mean that you have active TB; however, further medical investigation will be necessary prior to commencing work.

SUBMITTING CERTIFICATES
Upon completion of testing, you will be required to submit a certificate signed by a registered health professional (doctor, registered nurse, registered practical nurse) indicating the date of the test and the result, to the Human Resources Division. Blank certificates are available from the Human Resources Division. Certificates should be submitted to the Human Resources Division, 141 May Street, South, Thunder Bay. Office hours are 8:30 am - 4:30 pm (EST), Monday through Friday.

COSTS
The Corporation of the City of Thunder Bay is not responsible for any costs associated with either obtaining TB skin testing or for any costs associated with the diagnosis and treatment of TB identified through skin testing.
