    Anyone know how TB testing is organised during Covid 19?

    How are farmers [especially sole farmers] treated during the present Covid 19 crisis vis-a-vis TB testing? Do the testing team wear PPE to stop the transmission of Covid 19 disease to the farmer? Is the Farmer advised about or supplied with protective gear?
