Tuberculosis Control

The Tuberculosis (TB) Control Program at County of Lake Health Services offers a number of services to assist both patients and health providers, including:

  • Evaluation and treatment of patients with suspected or active tuberculosis (TB)
  • Medical consultation to health providers
  • Case management
  • Health education and counseling
  • Directly Observed Therapy (DOT) in clinic and community settings

People with TB disease can spread infection to people they spend time with every day, such as family members or coworkers. If you think you have been around someone who has TB, call the TB Control Program at (707) 263-1090.
