California TB Test Requirement

Two of the requirements to be a substitute teacher with Swing are a TB test and a LiveScan background check

TB Test Requirement:

You can complete the TB test requirement in one of two ways, online or in-person. We recommend trying online first.


  • Note: If you do not pass the online risk assessment then you will need to receive a follow-up TB skin test. You can follow the "in-person" steps below to receive a TB skin test.


  • If you haven’t had a TB test recently and did not pass the online risk assessment, we recommend doing a TB skin test. You can complete a skin test at WellnessMart or through your local clinic/provider. If you get your skin test at WellnessMart, the results will automatically be sent to Swing. If you get it completed with another provider, please upload a copy of the negative results to your profile. Save the receipt for any cost to you, and we’ll reimburse you once you’ve subbed your first day with us.

It generally takes 2-3 days for TB tests to be read by a physician. 

Note: If you are not able to successfully complete the TB requirement via risk assessment or skin test, contact us and we will walk you through the next steps.
