Physician Requirements

According to the Health Protection and Promotion Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. H.7, physicians, healthcare providers, hospital administrators and superintendents of institutions, school principals, pharmacists and operators of a laboratory are required to report all positive TSTs, suspect and active tuberculosis (TB) cases to the Halton Region Health Department. This includes persons who have an abnormal chest x- ray and/or symptoms of TB. 
Please note that a referral to a specialist or pending results, ie sputum results should not delay the reporting of a positive TST.
