Harbert is a 15 y/o Nigerian male with weight loss and cough. Pulmonary TB is suspected.

Questions:

1) What isolation precautions are indicated?

  • What does airborne isolation for TB entail? Why is this different than airborne isolation for varicella/diss zoster?

2) Do HCW or family members need PPD testing?
