Tuberculosis Surveillance, Control and Education:

The Council Bluffs Health Department recognizes the risk of tuberculosis transmission and strives to reduce the risk to staff and individuals in the community. Public Health Nurses provide tuberculosis (TB) screening, lab testing, and follow-up of high-risk individuals. The primary concern is the prevention and treatment of TB disease and infection by adequately identifying and following active cases, suspects and infected individuals until completion of adequate drug therapy.
