    3. If a skin test is provided, please be sure to return to True Worth Place on Friday before 12 p.m. for your skin test reading. 
    4. If you have EVER tested positive on a skin or blood test for TB, please be sure to tell the TB staff so that other arrangements can be made for your shelter clearance/scan card.
    5. We appreciate your kindness and patience in advance for assisting us in helping you get your scan card/shelter clearance as quickly as possible.
    6. At times, additional testing or screening questions may be required by the Outreach Staff.
