    Speaker Notes: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has identified these workplaces as having high incidences of TB. Health care facilities include hospitals where patients with confirmed or suspect TB are treated or to which they are transported. Coverage of non-health care settings (doctors offices, clinics, etc.) include only personnel present during performance of high hazard procedures on suspect or active TB patients. Dental health care personnel are covered only if they treat suspect or active patients in a hospital, correctional facility, or as part of their practice.
