Tuberculosis Testing

Gasconade County Health Department provides TB skin testing at both the Hermann Office and the satellite office in Owensville. No appointment is necessary. The test must be read 48-72 hours following the test; if not read within the time frame, it may be necessary to repeat the test.

Due to the timing of the reading of the test and availability of public health nurses, preferred testing times are as follows:

  • Hermann:
    • Tuesdays – Skin Test Given
    • Thursdays – Skin Test Read
  • Owensville:
    • Mondays – Skin Test Given
    • Wednesday – Skin Test Read

No appointment is necessary, if provided on the above days of the week.
